"A team that includes researchers from the University of Southampton (Southampton, England) has developed new technology that could significantly improve spacecraft or satellite exploration. Metamaterial Optical Solar Reflectors (meta-OSRs) are the first-surface coatings on the outside of a spacecraft, designed to effectively radiate infrared heat away from the surface while reflecting most of the optical solar spectrum." by Gail Overton
