How Exactly Does DreamUp Bring My Research to Space?

DreamUp is powered by NanoRacks, the commercial leader for access to low-Earth orbit. NanoRacks runs the only commercial research platforms on board the International Space Station, allowing absolutely anyone with reputable research to work on ISS. NanoRacks has a number of flight opportunity partners, including Swiss Space Systems (S3) Zero-G Parabolic Flights. This program aims to stimulate commercial student participation in unqiue microgravity research.
