ISS National Lab Project Pipeline
The ISS National Lab, powered by NASA and CASIS, is your gateway to space-based research and development (R&D) initiatives with Earth benefit. CASIS, as manager of the ISS National Lab, promotes, enables, and supports the development and execution of science in space for life on Earth. Below, browse our “project pipeline*” which shows recent, current, and upcoming ISS National Lab research projects that seek to improve quality of life for those of us here on our home planet.
Note: The ISS National Lab research portfolio also contains a multitude of commercial payloads sponsored by NanoRacks, which are not reflected in this database. In addition, NASA continues to launch many investigations in pursuit of traditional space-exploration goals—as well as many investigations that directly or peripherally have benefit to life on Earth. The below database only includes only R&D with Earth benefit from CASIS-sponsored payloads.
*Project pipeline content is updated quarterly. Launch and return dates are subject to schedule shifts and change frequently. Current estimates were populated September 30, 2016.
