“When people hear about using the space station, it’s all about going to Mars, which is certainly great, and I could talk about that forever. But our focus is using the ISS as a medium to create new products, better products—whether they be drugs or semiconductors or other materials. This is not about us going to Mars; this is about us making life better on Earth.”
