29 Space Processing
Includes space-based development of materials, compounds, and processes for research or commercial application. Also includes the development of materials and compounds in simulated reduced-gravity environments. For legal aspects of space commercialization see 84 Law, Political Science and Space Policy.
Space Processing – Synthesis, processing, forming, and fabrication of compounds or materials in space or in a simulated space environment; normally involving techniques that exploit low-gravity or high-vacuum conditions.
Exhaustive Interest : All aspects of space processing including the effects of space or simulated space environments on the chemical, structural, and physical properties of materials and compounds as related to manufacturing or processing in space.
