MTROP preparing to launch

December 13th 2017 . Kennedy Space Center, FL – The Kayser Italia integration team is working at the NASA Kennedy Space Center to support the integration and the launch of the “Multi-Trop” experiment to be launched with SpaceX-13. The experiment will verify the role of the water and of the nutritive elements in the orientation and growth of the roots in zero-g conditions. Although “Multi-trop” is an educational experiment (University “Federico II” and “Silvestri” lyceum in Naples), the students experienced all the management and development steps of an experiment flying on-board the ISS. Once on  board the experiment will be managed by the astronauts crew. The launch is expected on Dec, 15th 2017
