Beschreibung

Fundamental research is often bound by restrictions imposed by Earth’s gravitational field. While experimenting in space allows for undisturbed experimentation, technological readiness, availability and accessibility present challenges for experimental operation. Ground based micro-gravity facilities can bridge the gap towards deployment in space. Besides being an accelerator for technology development, these allow fundamental and applied research with the additional benefit of being able to access and adjust the experiment in-between (experimental) runs.
This summary will outline available options and discuss their unique features.
