Earth Applications
Outcomes of this experiment include: 1) maintenance of two different temperatures during launch and ascent; 2) control and maintenance of appropriate culture atmosphere; 3) control of fluidic transportation; 4) containment of both new and used fluids; 5) containment of the culture; 5) culture access to air and fluids; and 6) image capturing. These outcomes will be used to determine customer readiness of the module and future revisions.
