SpacePharma

Living in zero gravity may be not be so great for humans, but it turns out it’s a great environment for bacteria. It grows faster and often stronger without the force of gravity weighing it down. Pharmaceutical companies like testing in space, because it allows them to see how bacteria reacts in a shorter time frame. Unfortunately it’s very expensive to run experiments in space. Space Pharma, founded in 2012, is designed to make it more affordable. The company sends autonomous mini-labs into space. In 2018, it successfully got its unmanned mini-lab to the International Space Station and back with samples.
