NanoRacks’ commercial space testing platform outside the ISS is now open for business
Say you’ve got an experiment or prototype satellite that you want to expose to the ravages of space. Sure, you could launch it with a bunch of others, but what if you need it back afterwards? NanoRacks has you covered.
