Princeton, NJ - According to Jeanne DeVoe of the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab, "Lenore Rasmussen's dream of developing a synthetic muscle that could be used to make better prosthetic limbs and more responsive robots will literally become airborne this week, when her experiment will rocket off to the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral in Florida. Rasmussen, a synthetic polymer chemist and founder of Ras Labs, has worked closely with researchers and engineers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) to develop the material's ability to adhere to metal. The Synthetic Muscle™ could be used in robotics in deep space travel such as travel to Mars because of its radiation resistance."
