Goal of the FORAREX (FORAminifera Rocket
EXperiment) project is the proof of concept for a rocket and
space suitable life support system for foraminifera Amphistegina
lobifera with integrated scientific sensors. Amphistegina lobifera is
a unicellular marine protist with an external calcareous shell and
diatoms as endosymbiotic algae. This first experiment
demonstrates that the technical setup is feasible and works fully
automated.
