Physical Sciences Laboratory


DSCN4870The ISU Physical Sciences Laboratory is the largest dedicated laboratory space at the ISU Central Campus. Here students receive hands-on workshops and project activities involving space physical sciences. One of the most popular of these is an annual workshop where the Masters students design and build a microgravity experiment for the ISU microgravity drop tower.
Students also have the opportunity to perform individual projects in the Mars Atmosphere Chamber, a low pressure chamber refurbished and modified by ISU Masters students to simulate the atmospheric conditions of Mars for astrobiology experiments or space hardware testing.
