Experiments that can’t be done on earth: Julie Robinson

"It provides the opportunity to do experiments that we can’t do on Earth."

What does a burning candle look like in space? How can microgravity help scientists develop vaccines for salmonella? What will happen to your salad dressing in orbit? At TEDxNASAJSCWomen, Julie Robinson shares the answers to these questions and more as she gives an introduction to the experiments that researchers are running on the International Space Station (Filmed at TEDxNASAJSCWomen)
