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 International Space Station.
This season on #NASAExplorers, we’re exploring why we send science to space, and what it takes to get it there. Spoiler alert: you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to conduct research in microgravity. This week, meet a team of researchers who are launching an experiment to space for the first time.
