Synthetic Muscle Material to be Tested in Space
The novel, gel-like material is an electroactive polymer capable of simulating the movement of muscles in humans. This is due to its ability to expand and contract, which makes it a potential material to develop more responsive robots and better prosthetic limbs. It exhibits rubber-like hardness and jelly-like softness.
