New England Sci-Tech Students Participate in Cubes in Space Experiments

“New England Sci-Tech students participate in the Cubes in Space program run by iEDU inc. where they create and present experiments that, if selected, launch into near-space on a NASA sounding rocket or zero pressure scientific balloon. This year, the students taking part in Cubes in Space proposed an experiment to test the viability of launching spray-dried blood into space for rehydration in a zero-gravity environment to treat traumatic injury in space.”

Since porcine blood most closely matches human blood, team is researching if APC’s products could treat traumatic injury in space. [Full story]
