Lab visit with bio-engineers at the CAPTURE building



This activ­i­ty will not be open for the gen­er­al public.

Professor Ramón Ganigué shows the del­e­ga­tion astro­nauts around the brand new lab of the Center for Microbial Ecology and Technology’. In this lab of UGENT research is done with­in the frame­work of the European MELiSSA project. The final goal of MELiSSA is an effi­cient and closed self-sup­port sys­tem that astro­nauts will need on extend­ed space jour­neys. Scientific insti­tutes all over the world are work­ing on this effi­cien­cy with­in the dif­fer­ent mod­ules of MELiSSA.
