Currently on MISSE: MISSE-9 ScienceThe Materials International Space Station Experiment (MISSE) Flight Facility is a commercially-available materials research facility at the ISS. MISSE offers unprecedented access to space, unparalleled pure science testing, and all at an affordable cost.
Types of testing available to you on MISSE include:
Alpha Space’s MISSE facility continues the legacy of NASA’s eight prior MISSE experiments, all of which were integrated by Alpha Space’s current employees. MISSE 1-8 were each dedicated science missions of limited durations, ending when the samples returned to earth. Alpha Space’s MISSE, in contrast, is a permanently installed, on-orbit test facility that is open to the entire space community, and designed to accommodate both active and passive experiments on a six-month launch/return rotation cycle.
