When SpaceX’s 19th commercial resupply services mission launched to the International Space Station (ISS) earlier this month, it carried close to 5,700 pounds of research and supplies to the orbiting laboratory. Among this cargo were several payloads from investigators working with ISS U.S. National Laboratory Implementation Partner NanoRacks. These ISS National Lab-sponsored payloads including “An experiment from biotechnology startup Pheronym in collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture studying microscopic worms that kill crop-harming insects.”

Read more about these payloads in this recent Space Newsfeed article.
