On-orbit Research


EXPANDING INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH IN LOW EARTH ORBIT

Axiom Space aims to ensure the continuity and expansion of research on-orbit while making access faster, simpler and much less expensive by increasing use of terrestrial standards, interfaces and commercial off-the-shelf hardware.

AREAS OF RESEARCH INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:

  • Human health, both on earth and in space
  • Life sciences (non-human) including research on plants, animals and microorganisms
  • Protein crystallization
  • Earth observation and disaster response
  • Deep space observation
  • Fluidics
  • Combustion
  • Materials
  • Satellite sensor demonstration
  • Global education and inspiration

NASA has developed an entire website dedicated to on-orbit research and its benefits for medicine, manufacturing and other areas of technology. This video, excerpted from the site, outlines from of those benefits:
