We’re conducting research on the ISS!

International Space Station

The International Space Station (ISS) is a space station, or a habitable artificial satellite, in low Earth orbit. It provides an active research platform for space-based experiments designed by researchers from all levels, from students to professionals globally.

Current Projects:

In 2017-2018, we are excited to announce two projects.

SpaceLab II  (2017-2018)

Students research will be approved by NASA on September 2017.

Swinburne University of Technology I

Details will be announced soon.

Past Project: SG SpaceLab

For the first time, a Singaporean experiment was installed by astronauts and executed for several weeks on board the ISS. The project looked at the effects of space radiation on melanin in genetically modified bacteria. What experiment do you want to send up to space?
