Rhodium Crystal Preservation

This work could help provide a way to overcome the challenges of stabilizing and maintaining biological materials for research on future space missions. Creating a novel technique for preserving biological materials has potential applications for research in remote locations in space and on Earth where the ability to maintain a cold chain is limited.

Synthetic Cryptobiology

The overall project objective is to demonstrate a workable synthetic cryptobiology pipeline for sample preparation, transfer of samples to space, execute experimental procedures in space, and preserve all biological samples that retain a function of interest.

Probiotic Challenge

Results from this study could advance yoghurt production methods and nutritional content on Earth. The research is planned as an annual collaboration between Swinburne University and Rhodium Scientific to provide high-quality research opportunities for students in science, engineering, technology, and mathematics fields.

Rhodium DARPA Biomanufacturing 01 

A view of a science chamber from the Rhodium DARPA Biomanufacturing 01 investigation, which examines gravity’s effect on production of drugs and nutrients from bacteria and yeast.

A team of researchers from Rhodium Scientific and the University of Florida propose that you pack some useful microbes along with your essentials. These microbes could help make other products you might need during your stay.

To test the concept of biomanufacturing in space, the research team is leveraging the International Space Station (ISS) National Laboratory. The project, which is supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), launched on SpaceX’s 27th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) mission and is now being carried out by ISS crew members. As part of DARPA’s Biomanufacturing: Survival, Utility, and Reliability beyond Earth (B-SURE) program, the investigation will examine how gravity affects the production of therapeutics and nutrients from bacteria and yeast.

SpaceX CRS-27 launched to the International Space Station on March 14, 2023 at 8:30 p.m. EDT. This mission included more than 15 ISS National Lab-sponsored payloads.
