A long exposure showing the impact of a small aluminum sphere traveling at over 3 km s−1 impacting a three layer panel of a bulk metallic glass cellular structure. The combination of high hardness, low density, low-melting temperature, and processing potential similar to plastics makes metallic glass structures ideal for orbital debris shielding on future spacecraft and satellites.
