Gli esperimenti di Kayser Italia raccontati da Playmobil

Le figure di Playmobil sono apprezzate da milioni di bambini in tutto il mondo, in una edizione speciale vengono descritti gli esperimenti della Missione Beyond,   la maggior parte dei quali ( NUTRISS, LIDAL, XENOGRISS, Mini_EUSO, Iperdrone)  effettuati grazie ai dispositivi sperimentali sviluppati da Kayser Italia.

ESA and Kayser Italia partnering for Bioreactor Express

September 26th, 2019. ESA announced the partnership with Kayser Italia to offer the Kubik facility on the International Space Station to commercial customers. The new Bioreactor Express Service allows users to conduct experiments in weightlessness. Bioreactor Express is a service which aims to establish an “express” way to perform scientific and/or technological experiments on board the International Space Station (ISS). It exploits the KUBIK incubator facility of the European Space Agency (ESA) which is permanently installed on the Columbus module of the ISS. With this approach several categories of experiments can be performed using available miniaturized “bioreactors” dedicated to biological, biotechnological and biochemistry experiments. A wider typology of experiments (plant physiology, food production, material science, fluid science, educational, etc.) can also be supported inside KUBIK.

The MiniEUSO telescope launched

Baiknonur Cosmodrome, August 22nd: The Soyuz MS-14 launched from the Baiknonur Cosmodrome succesfully brought in orbit the MiniEUSO (Multiwavelength Imaging New Instrument of Extreme Universe Space Observatory) telescope designed to make night observations of the UV light cosmic radiation. The telescope will be mounted in front of the UV-transparent window in the Russian module Zvezda in the ISS, looking toward the Earth. The telescope is developed by the Physics Department of the University of Rome Tor Vergata in cooperation with the Roscosmos Russian Space Agency. Kayser Italia provided the support to the instrumentation space engineering and was responsible of the  environmental testing campaign. The instrument includes a compact telescope with a wide field of view based on Fresnel lenses that allows to increase the collection of light; it is assisted by two ancillary chambers in the visible and near infrared. UV light is focused on a light collection module similar to the EUSO-Balloon and EUSO-TA experiments. The main objectives of Mini-EUSO are the study of atmospheric phenomena, transient luminous events, meteors, the search for Strange Quark Matter and the detection of cosmic ray cascades.


Biorock experiment on the next SpaceX -CRS18

Cape Canaveral, July 20th , 2019. The team of Kayser Italia at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the nex launch of the experiment BIOROCK with the SpaceX- CRS18. The experiment, run by a research team from the University of Edinburgh in the UK, with the support of Kayser Italia will test how altered states of gravity affect biofilm formation on the International Space Station. Microbes are able to weather down a rock from which they can extract ions. This natural process enables biomining, in which useful metals are extracted from rock ores. Already a common practice on Earth, biomining will eventually take place on the Moon, Mars and asteroids as we expand our understanding and exploration of the Solar System. In the meantime, microbes will be used for many other processes that involve microbial growth on rocks, such as making soil.
