The aim of the Spaceflow Studio is to drive innovation of chemistry discovery in space towards extending and sustaining human life.
The main challenges that the SpaceFlow project will tackle:
- Create a standardized and flexible space laboratory with a capability for a wide range of chemistry discovery coupled with plug and play “drug on demand” chemistry system where pharmaceuticals are synthesized, analyzed, purified, and formulated when needed.
- To utilize the extreme conditions of space on different chemical processes to discover new routes to novel molecules or more efficient chemical applications.
- Converting human biological waste materials to reusable chemicals in order to sustain human life.
The studio is collaborating with ACS (www.acs.org) on behalf of FCS (www.flowchemistrysociety.com) with the aim to organise the world’s first space chemistry symposium as a part of ACS Conference in San Francisco, April 2017.
