I’m Matsumoto, a first year master’s student at Hori and Fujimoto Lab. Not long ago, I went to the JAXA research institute in Sagamihara (virtually) for the practice class of this major. On the day of the event, the institute held a virtual tour and introduced us to research on composite materials. Composite materials are lighter and stronger than metals, and they have various interesting properties that are completely different from metals. During the tour, he showed us an experiment in which the aluminum and composite material were pulled with force until they broke. It seems that the virtual tour is better than the local tour because there are many students in the annual tour and some people can only see the experiment from a distance.
I hope that next year’s exercises can be held locally.
