BASIC OVERVIEW ON SPACE BIOTECHNOLOGY

The term Space biotechnology consists of two words: space and biotechnology. The use of space biotechnology is a recruited new branch in which all the R & D work related to biotechnology is going on in space, hence it is called space technology. In simple language, the life science program in space using engineering tools and techniques to make bio-products and services for human beings.  Do you know Biotechnology research work happening on earth is being affected by the gravitational force of the earth?  Yes, the interesting thing is that research work and animal existence are happening in a 1g (g= 9.8ms -2 ) environment.  Gravitational acceleration decreases when it goes above (altitude) the Earth’s surface.  That is, the attraction potential of the earth decreases when it goes above the surface of the earth. In fact, Gravity goes up to about zero in space. Loosely it is called zero gravity but precisely also called microgravity by scientists. This microgravity or zero gravity providing the basis of space biotechnology.
