Luca Parmitano returns to the International Space Station
Three exciting ESA experiments are soon headed to the International Space Station on board a Dragon resupply mission. The SpaceX cargo vehicle is slated for launch 24 July from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The experiments will investigate a range of phenomena that could lead to novel space and Earth applications.
From slimy rocks to bubbles in a box, the science soon to begin in the European Columbus module spans microbe growth, disease pathology, and heat transfer processes in the unique weightless environment of the Space Station.
