The Microgravity Research Program
is part of the NASA's Office
of Biological and Physical Research (OBPR).
The Microgravity Research Program is leading
the nation in furthering the development of
the space frontier by investigating the physical,
chemical, and biological effects of the microgravity
environment of space. Microgravity research
is a natural extension of traditional Earth-based
laboratory science, in which experiments performed
benefit from the stable, long-duration microgravity
We are recognized as a leader
in inspiring and achieving world-renowned
advancements in fluid physics using the unique
attributes of the space environment.
To facilitate and conduct the
best possible fluid physics research using
the space environment, make this knowledge
available to the scientific community and
the public at large, and promote its application
to space exploration and improvement of processes
and products on Earth.
