A decade of European space science on Columbus


Looking at a decade of European science on the International Space Station with the Columbus laboratory.

Columbus houses as many disciplines as possible in a small volume, from astrobiology to solar science through metallurgy and psychology – more than 227 experiments have been carried out during this remarkable decade. Countless papers have been published drawing conclusions from experiments performed in Columbus.

From circadian rhythms and new temperature sensors to edible algae as astronaut food through running experiments to grow crystals and investigate processes in a pure environment without gravity interfering with the process – Columbus helping scientists push the boundaries of what is possible and increase our knowledge for life on Earth.

  1. Only respect for such people. Wish government invested more in education and science programs (including space exploration related subject) instead of building yet another set of intercontinental nuclear missiles.
