More information is on the event’s website, which describes it as follows:

The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable will host a webinar on the opportunities for research partnership with the International Space Station National Laboratory. The International Space Station is arguably one of humankind’s greatest technical achievements—orbiting some 250 miles above our planet, traveling at 17,500 miles per hour, and continuously habiting humans in microgravity for nearly 20 years. Aside from housing astronauts who help to push the boundaries of technology and innovation, the space station has also been home to over 2,500 different science experiments that leverage the facility’s unique microgravity environment. The space station is available to a myriad of government, academic, and commercial researchers all interested in looking at science through a new lens.

Please join GUIRR for a conversation with experts from the International Space Station National Laboratory to discuss the past, present, and future of research and development taking place aboard the space station that could have impacts into the way we live here on Earth.

Free and open to the public.
