Brief description of this research type and how Redwire supports it.

Redwire Facilities, Products, and Support Services:

  • Multi-use Variable-gravity Platform (MVP)

Fractional Gravity Research Heritage

Fractional-Gravity Plant Growth Studies for Space Exploration

Take control of gravity as a variable.

Reproduce the gravity of Earth, the moon, Mars, and beyond to observe the effects fractional gravity exerts on living plant cells and better understand the molecular mechanisms and regulatory networks behind how plants sense and adapt to changes in their environment.

In-Space Food Production

Better food for a better future.

Space-grown plants could offer several advantages, including being better for nutrient absorption when humans eat them and in making plant waste easier for composting. Researching in-Space food production will guide our strategies for deep space exploration and colonization.
