Outer space isn’t just for exploration. We’ve seen how startups are helping astronauts bake bread and farm in orbit. Now, SpacePharma is enabling scientists to conduct remote experiments beyond our planet’s atmosphere. SpacePharma has developed a modular, miniaturised laboratory that has the capability to control remotely. Called the 'lab-on-a-chip', the equipment can study a wide range of fields, from cells to fluid dynamics once modified. Research conducted through automated processes or controlled remotely by users, using a web-based platform will enable control in near real time. Scientists will be able to use this to conduct experiments in microgravity (near weightlessness). This may…
