Automated labs in space
If you were a scientist, would you consider renting an automated lab in space? Apparently, you would.
Switzerland-based startup SpacePharma offers rentable end-to-end automated equipment for conducting experiments in space.
In partnership with partners including The International Space Station (ISS), the startup has developed a modular, miniaturised laboratory that has the capability to be controlled remotely or via an automated process. Using a web-based platform, scientists are able to control in near real time al their experiments in micro-gravity (near weightlessness). This may lead to new discoveries not possible on Earth’s gravity.
