Stem Cells at the Planetarium

Join host Dr. Insoo Hyun in our renowned Charles Hayden Planetarium for a specially curated Planetarium show, followed by audience discussion with Dr. Arun Sharma.  

The International Space Station (ISS) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) can serve as accessible, unique environments to study human development in microgravity. At the forefront of this new frontier is Dr. Sharma, who led a project that sent human stem cell-derived heart cells to the ISS to study the effects of microgravity on human heart function. Learn how stem cell biomanufacturing in space is being explored through commercial, governmental, and academic collaboration.
