Ricky Arnold

International Space Station astronaut Ricky Arnold works with a student-designed experiment using NanoRacks commercial science hardware. The study is researching the impacts of microgravity on tissue regeneration, concrete properties, antibiotics, and the growth of plant, fungi and bacteria. The research introduces students to the principles of space science possibly leading to a career as scientists.

Today, NASA celebrates the conclusion of the Year of Education on Station (YES) - a year in which astronauts and former teachers Joe Acaba and Arnold made the International Space Station their home. While on board, they shared their love of STEM and their passion for teaching. YES activities have provided opportunities for hundreds of students and educators to speak directly with astronauts in space, and thousands more to participate through NASA partnerships.
