We spoke to Dr Julie Robinson, Chief Scientist for the International Space Station, about the variety of experiments performed in microgravity conditions aboard ISS and the huge expansion of the scientific program in recent years
npj Microgravity Community is a multidisciplinary forum in which to further research in the microgravity environment. This research is needed not only to develop advanced exploration technologies but also to take advantage of the unique aspects of microgravity environments in order to advance fundamental scientific understanding. It is a place for international collaboration, sharing knowledge and bringing about new research insights and opportunities. The community supports the aims of the npj Microgravity journal in providing a thorough understanding of the scientific impact and future of microgravity research.
