Enabling the oxygen production and a food complement during spaceflight, means the technology function appropriately in the space environment. Therefore, a representative version of the process, called ARTEMISS, was installed onboard the International Space Station for few weeks.
This experiment provided results, about the growth of the cyanobacteria Arthrospira sp.and associated oxygen production.
Open view of the ARTEMISS flight hardware. We can recognize the lighting system of the Photobioreacor.
