ISS PayloadsThe SpaceX CRS-16 launched its resupply mission to the International Space Station on Dec. 4 and carried four Polars and the Rapid Freezer developed by UAB engineers from the Engineering and Innovative Technology Development (EITD) research group. This flight, combined with additional assets currently on-orbit, provided a record for UAB developed payloads on-orbit.

“Our employees at EITD always surpass our expectations,” said EITD Director Lee Moradi, Ph.D.. “Having 17 payloads on the International Space Station is a testament to their hard work and dedication. This record makes UAB a significant contributor to the ISS science support.”
