The next Axiom Space AX-2 mission, scheduled for launch in 2023, will involve a unique stem cell experiment.
The experiment will look at how stem cells develop and differentiate in microgravity, with implications for regenerative medicine and other industries.
Microgravity, or the lack of gravity, creates an unusual setting for investigating biological processes such as cell development and differentiation.
The AX-2 mission, which will involve four private astronauts, will launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
The AX-2 mission demonstrates the value of space exploration in advancing scientific inquiry and innovation.
Microgravity stem cell research could yield new insights and applications in regenerative medicine, disease research, and other domains.
