“Space is one of the places in which origami plays a significant role. Certain items need to be small in order fit into rockets, and then, when they reach their destination in space, they need to be big. When you have those two needs, origami is the right solution for the transition between those two states.” – Robert J. Lang

Science of Origami

Most of us have more or less encountered origami when we were children. Origami is a craft of making a model by folding a paper – no cutting, no gluing.

Today, origami is more than just a crane and a childhood play. There are many types of origami that continually inspire engineers from all fields and professions: biologists, mathematicians, scientists, and – lately – astronauts.
