NanoRacks Centrifuge will open the door to a new range of low-cost research opportunities onboard the ISS by the final quarter of 2013.
The NanoRacks Centrifuge-1 will be permanently housed on the ISS U.S. National Lab, providing microgravity experimentation opportunities for your choice of microgravity research.
The centrifuge, developed with Astrium NA, will occupy one slot in the new NanoRacks NR-3 platform. The centrifuge, previously flown on a number of STS missions, can simulate Earth, Moon and Mars gravity.
You provide the samples and we provide the rest. From required paperwork to power, from transportation to data retrieval and results analysis.
- Standardized modules
- Power from ISS (5V dc)
- Easy data downloads
- Repeatable experimentation
Everything necessary for a successful mission is taken care of by the NanoRacks team. Through our partners and via our own facilities, NanoRacks offers complete in-house capabilities for payload integration, payload design and development and interfacing with NASA and foreign space agencies.
