Miniature Lab Conducts Successful Experiments In The Outer Space


Shrinking a lab into the size of a tissue box that could be operated remotely and can perform experiment in micro-gravity opens new vistas before the space scientists.

SpacePharma is a “Swiss-Israeli company” that reported about its “miniature lab” which found a new method for the researches to “work in microgravity” for a long time. The said laboratory has been reduced to a “tissue box” size, whereby a similar one “was launched into space on board a satellite by India's national space agency last month”.
SpacePharma has informed that with the help of the micro-lab “a series of experiments on board” were successful in micro-gravity. In the words of the SpacePharma’s Founder, Yossi Yamin:
“SpacePharma provides the first ever designed launch commercial satellite laboratory that now is available for many clients wherever they are, in order to be able them to run their own designed experiments in microgravity, without man in the loop, no astronauts, no space agencies and this is the new technology that we are now proposing to the market, in order to develop better drugs, better medicines, better research and better products for humanity.”
Mostly space experiments are conducted in the “International Space Station” by astronauts, while some are carried out on “special plane flights” with “bursts of weightlessness”. However, with the help of mini-lab, scientists can now conduct experiments from anywhere on earth by operating it remotely as molecular as well as cellular behaviour undergo change in a microgravity condition. Yamin also added:
“This environment (space) is a different stress environment. So the temperature, the stress, the non gravitation, the density of the molecules or the liquids, is not happening there. And this is not a simulator or a centrifuge that you have like side effects on the molecules.”
While Jim Drury reported that:
“By next year SpacePharma hope up to 160 concurrent experiments will be possible on satellites. The firm says experiments in microgravity could lead to discoveries in medicine and agriculture”.
