The International Space Station is home to game changing research projects designed to transform life on earth.

As the crew of Expedition 52 returns to earth today, they can reflect on the fact their work aboard the ‘orbiting laboratory’ will have long-term impact on their home planet. The team have conducted hundreds of biotech, biology, Earth science and physical science experiments.
