NIZEMI (slow rotating centrifuge microscope) is a tool for optical investigations of small biological and non-biological specimens during variable accelerations. Two laboratory models for ground research designed for accelerations from 1 to 5 x g and 10 x g respectively are used for terrestrial research, especially in gravitational biology. A space facility was developed and built for the Spacelab mission IML-2 during which eight experiments were performed successfully. The specifications and… CONTINUE READING
