The properties and developments of materials for large aperture space mirrors, which are pursued for high-resolution earth observation and deep space exploration, are summarized in this paper. All these materials were classified into several kinds depend on their substance and performance. Their advantages and disadvantages in manufacturing large aperture space mirrors were discussed; especially their fabrication, optical machining and application. The trends of development of materials for large space mirrors are overviewed.
