Non-Profit to Manage ISS National Laboratory

Florida Today reports the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) will manage the part of the International Space Station designated a U.S. National Laboratory.

CASIS is based at Kennedy Space Center.

Agency officials said the center's proposal, led by Space Florida, stood out from three others because of its process for evaluating not only basic science but experiments that might have useful commercial applications ...

The lab offers access to U.S., European and Japanese facilities inside and outside the station. Time allotted for U.S. research is split 50-50 with NASA, which will continue its own experiments.
