Space Fermentation

Developing Sensor Systems for Measuring Fermentation in Space

Official Project Website: Space Miso

Paper: (TBD)

Summary: Does Miso ferment differently in space? What does space miso taste like?? Here I designed and constructed an embedded system that periodically samples sensors that monitor miso fermentation and streams that sensor data to Earth from the International Space Station. We launched this project to the ISS for a 30-day experiment in 2020. Read more about the unit we made here.
