NASA news: International Space Station begin growing ORGANS in zero gravity 1

Previous research has involved simulated ad real experiments, mostly using tumour cells and placing real human stem cells into microgravity simulators.

However, the next stage of the research is key because “there is no alternative to the ISS”, Professor Ullrich says.

This is because 3D tissue formation of this kind requires several days or even weeks in microgravity.

After the month-long experiment, the scientists will get the samples back and expect to see successful formation of ”organoids”.
