ESA experiment SPHEROIDS launched with SpaceX-8


April 8th, 2016 - The ESA experiment SPHEROIDS has been launched with SpaceX-8 rocket at 20:43 UTC on April, 8th, from the NASA Kennedy Space Center (Florida) and it is on its way to the ISS, where the experiment will be carried out. The SPHEROIDS experiment aims at investigating the effects of weightlessness on tube formation, differentiation and the mechanisms of apoptosis in human endothelial cells. The experiment's Principal Investigator is Professor Daniela Grimm of the University of Aarhus, Denmark. The industrial team includes Kayser Italia and the Swiss based company RUAG aerospace. The experiment, to be performed inside the KUBIK incubator facility on board the International Space Station, needs quite large volumes for the culture chamber and chemical reservoirs. Because of that, Kayser Italia developed an experiment container with almost 1 liter of internal available volume and a custom interface plate for the KUBIK.
