Edge of Space Brings the ISS to Finland


Kalle Vähä-Jaakkola of Space Nation gestures to an image from the Nanoracks Black Box experiment module on ISS. The white pouch he's pointing to in the lower right corner of the image contains Cherry Belle Radish seeds that will be used by Edge of Space to produce thousands of Space Seedz™ science experiment packs for distribution to schools in Finland.

Space Nation and Edge of Space expect to reach 100,000 students in Finland through this experiment upon its return from ISS!  Each Space Seedz™ experiment can engage a student in an average of 9 hours of hands-on space science education. This single experiment - launched by Edge of Space and sponsored by Space Nation and Cohu Experience - will provide almost 1,000,000 hours of science education for Finnish school children in 2017!
