Flow Sensor Takes Flight

Flow Sensor Takes Flight
Sensirion AG

On May 6, 2014, a rocket will be heading for the International Space Station (ISS) carrying a liquid flow sensor from Sensirion AG, Stäfa, Switzerland. The sensor is part of a research project by Minnehaha Academy in Minnesota that is investigating the impact of microgravity on the effectiveness of liquid flow. Among other potential findings, the project aims to shed light on the effects of weightlessness on the circulatory system. The LS16 liquid flow sensor will measure the flow of demineralized water generated by a piezoelectric pump in zero gravity, and compare the results with those of a control experiment on earth.
