In 2011, NASA chose the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) to manage the International Space Station’s U.S. National Laboratory. Its mission is to harness the imagination of both American entrepreneurs and scientists alike to aid in accelerating and facilitating space-based research as well as generating public awareness of the National Lab’s research that in turn makes space science more accessible to the world.
