The ExoLab-8 mission will investigate how the stress of spaceflight affects the symbiotic relationship of red clover and nitrogen-fixing Rhizobia bacteria. While the experiment is on station, students will conduct ground control experiments to compare plant growth in microgravity vs. the 1G environment. We will also receive regular data and images back through regular links, which will be posted on the Magnitude platform. Lessons have been designed for all grade levels. For less than the cost of a bus ticket on a local field trip, you can bring your students on this out-of-this-world virtual trip. 

ExoLab Growth Lab

The dimensions of the ExoLab device both terrestrially and in-orbit are based on the common CubeSat specification, which standardizes satellite payloads in an approximate 10 cm cuboid format. ExoLab is in a 2U format, which means that its dimensions are 10 x 10 x 22 cm, approximately.

Within this compact frame are a series of sensors to capture, record, and report data, including images, as well as system to keep the test organisms alive. All of these operate autonomously and continuously.
