South by Southwest – Microgravity Research

March 14

Tissue engineering. Fluid dynamics. Combustion. Plasma. Hear why scientists are sending experiments into low earth orbit and what we learn from conducting research in the microgravity environment aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The most basic phenomena on Earth can change 250 miles above its surface. Even cells can grow differently in microgravity, potentially allowing researchers to figure out ways to bioengineer replacement body parts for Earth-dwellers. Research experiments aboard the ISS promise to advance future crewed space exploration, enhance…

Yet successful and innovative outcomes are often the product of failures that occur through iterating and inventing new solutions. Is it possible to balance a “Failure is not an option” culture with a “Fail early and fail often” mindset? What can we learn from the two?   CPL Hauser…
