Boeing and the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) have joined forces to promote the use of the International Space Station (ISS) as an orbiting laboratory capable of producing cutting-edge research across numerous scientific disciplines.

The two organisations, on November 02 granted a total of USD500 thousand to three microgravity research companies through start-up accelerator MassChallenge. The grants will provide seed funding for the three awarded companies and assist with hardware costs for flight to the ISS National Lab.

This year’s winning projects had to incorporate science or technology initiatives that would effectively use and benefit from ISS National Lab capabilities. CASIS will continue to work with additional MassChallenge Technology in Space proposers to build on their ideas and potentially transform them into flight-ready projects.
