Dr Julie Robinson is ISS Programme Scientist at NASA.

ISS Research Benefits

  • Amazing engineering achievement. First years of full utilisation. The collaboration with all partners is great, science is internationals as knowledge knows no borders.
  • The days ahead will be full of breakthrough discoveries. Many presentations are not fit for written publication [yet].
  • 1251 investigations begun by different members of our partnership. We can now treat gravity as a variable and no longer as a constant.[flickr float=”right” size=”small”]7136091495[/flickr]
  • Discovery: The first direct observation of a star being swallowed by a black hole was captured by the MAXI payload.

Examples of exploration

  • Materials; new environments requires finding the right materials to protect our bodies.
  • Earth benefits: CSA brain surgery via robotics
  • Testing new applications before building full satellites: ship monitoring.
  • Education: motivating children to continue careers in science via ARISS.
