Every organic compound and living organism to-date have shown a response to the unique space environment. Everything we understand about the world changes. Bone growth, impacts to the immune system, flavors, chemical bonds, plant growth, crystallization, bacterial resistance, and 3D tissue development – all change when gravity is removed as a variable.
Nanoracks has simplified the interface to complex in-space research hardware and platforms so that you can make novel discoveries and manufacture unique products in space without having to be a rocket scientist.
In partnership with Zero G Kitchen, Nanoracks has built, and now operates, the world’s first microgravity oven to bake food on the International Space Station.
Until the ZGK oven first launched in 2019, no food item had ever been cooked from raw in space. Why? It’s a lot harder than it looks.
Want to experiment on how your food product cooks in space? You’ve come to the right place.
There are few words that describe the feeling you see watching your hard work loft into space. Countless research hours, long nights in the lab – but it’s all worth it for the very moment you hear “LIFTOFF!”
Since words don’t do it justice – check out this video of researchers watching their first-ever experiment fly to the International Space Station (and yes, Nanoracks is able to provide access to our customers for launches – we know – it’s a BIG deal).
