July 23, 2019 – TBE delivered one of its latest Space Station experiments, the Ring Sheared Drop (RSD), to NASA. RSD will study the formation of the amyloid fibrils that are found in the brain tissues of patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. On Earth, container walls and heat convection affect the formation of the fibrils. Scientists want to run the experiments in microgravity where there is no heat driven convection and where liquids form into a spherical drop, thus eliminating the need for a container. For this experiment, Teledyne Brown Engineering designed the hardware from initial concept, fabricated and assembled the flight hardware, and created the software that allows the hardware to be controlled from the ground.
