Gore space cables on board of InSight lander
Greetings from Mars
Ever since the InSight Mars Lander arrived safely on the red planet in November, not a day has gone by without new photos and reports from afar. Gore’s cables were used as part of the navigation system and are also on board the lander itself, communicating data back to Earth and helping scientists understand the formation and early evolution of rocky planets.

The New GORE™ ImproJect™ Plunger
Addressing the Challenge of Silicone-Sensitive Biologics
Biologic drugs are at the forefront of biomedical research. Developed to treat complex diseases like cancer and rheumatoid arthritis, they are typically administered by injection. However, some biologics can negatively interact with silicone, a common lubricant within a pre-filled syringe delivery system. The new GORE™ ImproJect™ Plunger eliminates the need for silicone in both plunger and glass barrel, while ensuring the functionality and performance of pre-filled syringes.
New GORE-TEX® 3D Fit Footwear Technology
Fitting like a sock
