Space Biology and Microgravity Science refers to research to find solutions for scientific challenges through utilization of space environmental characteristics such as microgravity, vacuum, solar energy and cosmic rays. New tasks for science and space systems will be found by utilizing an orbital environment such as the International Space Station (ISS).
