SpX-4 launched a new EMCS experiment to the ISS
10/9/2014 by Carina Helle Berg
 
​On September 20, 2014 the SpaceX-4 rocket launched a new set of Arabidopsis seeds to the International Space Station (ISS). The seeds will be cultivated inside the European Modular Cultivation System (EMCS), controlled by the N-USOC-team at Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Space (CIRiS).
 
German astronaut Alexander Gerst will install the seed cassettes inside the EMCS on October 17 and N-USOC will operate the EMCS facility and monitor the seedling development for the next 6 days, before the experiment is terminated. A total of three repetitions of the experiment will be performed, ending the operations phase on November 7.
 
The principle Investigators of the Seedling Growth-2 experiment are John Kiss and Francisco Javier Medina.
