Sending Science Experiments Into Space

Sending Science Experiments Into Space | Australian Curriculum Science | Scoop.it

Five years ago, if you wanted to send a science experiment into space, you either needed access to the international space station or several million dollars. Today, you just need a good idea, or a few grand.

 

“Coming up in the next six months, you’ll be able to design your own experiment in a small box, put it on a vehicle and for several thousands of dollars, fly it to space and back," says Andrew Nelson.

 

Nelson is chief operating officer of XCOR – it’s one of the leading private space-flight companies. Within the next year, XCOR plans to launch its first of thousands of suborbital flights on its two-seat spacecraft called the Lynx. The spacecraft is being built in Mojave, Calif.; it will soon be moved to Midland, Texas (a move another private space flight company, SpaceX is still considering). The Lynx will carry one passenger and a dozen or so science experiments into low-Earth orbit.
