Visit to Nuevas Tecnologias Espaciales (NTE)

The Life Sciences Department visited Nuevas Tecnologias Espaciales (NTE) today after the morning lectures. NTE is a small company that offers their expertise in the Space Life Sciences and Biomedical sectors.

Below is a picture of the Muscular Atrophy Research and Exercise System (MARES). MARES is developed by a consortia led by a company called Nuevas Tecnologias Espaciales (NTE). It is a strength measurement device for physiological research under microgravity conditions onboard the International Space Station (ISS). We were able to view the crew getting the qualifier model and flight model ready to send to NASA.
