What’s up on the International Space Station (ISS)?

There’s a new quarterly magazine on the ISS National Lab that promises to fill you in and up with new data.

This publication comes courtesy of the Center for Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and NASA.

Called “Upward” this new publication promises to delve into the latest research experiments and findings onboard and stemming from the orbiting outpost.

 

 

 

Frequent flyers

There are a myriad of current and future users of the ISS National Lab.

Upward is dedicated to becoming a “go-to” resource to learn from the diverse ISS research community – including both new-to-space investigators and “frequent flyers” who have been exploring the possibilities of science in space for more than a decade.

For years, the International Space Station has been a human spaceflight’s destination, with crew members conducting science from around the globe.

The 2005 NASA Authorization Act designated the U.S segment of the ISS as a national laboratory, giving an open invitation to researchers to utilize the ISS environment for their work.

With a new generation of U.S. commercial spacecraft and rockets supplying cargo, and soon astronauts, to the space station, the expectation is that a wide range of industries can benefit from space-based research.
