It will test the cultivation of microalgae to someday serve as both food and a source of oxygen on the space station

There are four different varieties of tissue chips such as lung and bone marrow chip, a cartilage and bone chip, a chip that simulates the blood-brain barrier, and one that cultivates kidney cells
