There’s more science going on in Earth’s orbit than you might think, and it’s not all planetary science and astrophysics! Microgravity lets us study a huge variety of scientific phenomena related to biology, fluid mechanics, and materials science. Some of the many fields ASGSR scientists work in are listed in the table below. Links will take you to relevant ISS researcher’s guides in the various fields, which are published by NASA.
