Nanoskeleton was scheduled for its first operations on ISS Increment 19/20.
Information PendingEarth Applications
The target of this research is to develop the new TiO2 photo catalyst. The experiment data will be inputted into the computational chemistry simulation for Nanoskeleton synthesis, and the simulation will be used for the prediction of the proper parameter for synthesis on the ground.
