Opportunities for International Space Station Research

Flying experiments on the International Space Station is a unique opportunity to eliminate   gravity as a variable, to provide exposure to vacuum and radiation, and to have a clear view of  both the Earth and universe beyond. If you have an idea for a space flight experiment and want to learn how to have it operated on ISS, this is where to begin. We'll show you how to identify facilities to support your experiment on ISS, launch opportunities, funding resources and the process for performing you research in space. Click here for guidance
