ROSCOSMOE : the Open Clinostat

Abstract : Roscosmoe aims to develop and design a series of experiences and bioregenerative life-support systems to assess the behavior of symbiotic marine organisms in a variety of gravitational environments, including zero-gravity conditions. One of the objectives of Roscosmoe is to develop an Open hardware 3D Clinostat, a microgravity simulation tool used for the behavioral study of living organisms.
The Open Clinostat 3D project is developed in the fablab Platform C with the members of the PING association of Nantes and the support of the Federation - Open Space Makers initiative, the support of the CNES and the M3 laboratory of the Roscoff Marine Station (CNRS - Sorbonne Universités).
