Experiments that demonstrate 3D printing with dust, use engineered tissue to study muscle loss, and analyze growth of slime mold, along with other scientific studies and supplies, are headed to the International Space Station on Northrop Grumman’s 16th commercial resupply services mission (NG CRS-16). Launch of the Cygnus spacecraft is targeted for August 10 from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The experiments carried by this spacecraft add to a long list of studies conducted during more than 20 years of continuous human habitation of the orbiting lab, helping researchers explore farther into space and benefiting humans back on Earth.
