NanoRacks: Your Gateway to Space!
NanoRacks’ low-cost model puts microgravity research projects within the budgetary realm of hundreds of universities, smaller organizations and first-time commercial space research users. Find out more about our ISS National Lab facilities.
Commercial ISS SpaceLab
The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) video offering researchers a chance to conduct experiments in the vacuum of space. Small payloads of materials, observation and biological science experiments are sought for internal and external space research and experimentation via NanoRacks.
Small Satellite Deployment
NanoRacks SmallSat Deployment Program allows commercial customer payloads to be launched from the International Space Station, see some recent payload launch images or find out more about our satellite deployment facilities.
External Platform Program
NanoRacks External Platform Program provides access to the extremes of space for your low earth orbit research projects, learn more about our External Platform onboard the International Space Station.
