Measuring enzyme activities under microgravity
The JSTP12 team developed a conceptual device that can conduct an investigation on enzyme behavior and activity under microgravity. The device was designed to be used in the parabolic flight, which generate the microgravity condition. The applications of this technology are broad, but the most important impact is that it would help researchers conduct experiments on human metabolism and chemical reaction in the condition that is slightly similar to space.
