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 sources, points of contact, and the process for performing you research in space.
