Scientists and students shared their work that is launching on SpaceX’s 22nd commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station during a What’s on Board briefing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Studies include an investigation of how microscopic water bears react to life in microgravity, and an experiment aimed at giving scientists fundamental knowledge of how good microbes interact with animal tissue. Students from the Robertsville Middle School in Oak Ridge, Tennessee discussed RamSat, a student-built CubeSat designed to track vegetation regrowth after wildfires.
The SpaceX CRS-22 mission is scheduled to launch to the orbiting laboratory on June 3.
