NASA Explorers: Microgravity
The International Space Station, a laboratory like no other, offers something we can’t get on our home planet: Microgravity.
NASA Explorers: Orbiting Laboratory
Things behave a bit differently aboard the ISS, thanks to microgravity. Sure, floating looks like fun, but it could also unlock new scientific discoveries.
NASA Explorers: The Scientists
Putting your life’s work on top of a rocket may seem like a daunting task, but that’s exactly what scientists have been doing for decades as they launch their research to the ISS.
NASA Explorers: Training the Astronauts
Astronauts train all over the world, including at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Here, they learn not just how to live in space, but also how to conduct science in microgravity.
NASA Explorers: Before the Rocket
Our team of scientists is just days away from their research being loaded onto a SpaceX rocket that will carry their experiment to the International Space Station.
NASA Explorers: Journey to Space
The day has finally arrived. After years of work, our team of scientists is at the Kennedy Space Center in the hopes of seeing their research liftoff to the International Space Station.
NASA Explorers: On Station
Now that our researchers’ experiment is on the International Space Station, it’s time to test how their samples behave in microgravity.
NASA Explorers: Back to Gravity
With the experiment’s journey complete, Elaine Horn-Ranney Ph.D. and Parastoo Khoshaklagh Ph.D. now join the thousands of scientists who’ve performed research aboard the ISS.
