South African students are joining the ExoLab experiment on the International Space Station

Trisha Crookes, CEO of I-Innovative, had the kick-off presentation of ExoLab in South Africa. On behalf of all the US students and educators in the program, we are excited and welcome the students of Cape Academy of Mathematics, Science & Technology and Claremont High School in Cape Town joining us in April 2018 on investigating the effect of microgravity on living things. We are looking forward to discovering life in Space together with students on the other side of the equator.

The ExoLab experiment will be on board of the SpaceX-14 resupply mission to the International Space Station scheduled on April 4th, 2018.

Check out some time-lapse videos of the Arabidopsis Thaliana in the ExoLab Growth Chamber.

Special thank to Tata Consultancy Services in South Africa, Living Maths, and One on one.

This is the beginning of a larger launch in the Fall of 2018. If you have a school(s) in South Africa that want to join this Out-of-this-World experience, please contact Trisha Crookes directly via email or fill out this form.
