  Penn Students' Design To Reach New Heights Aboard the ISS
  In response to a call to "Print the Future," three Penn undergraduates won the opportunity to have their design 3-D printed aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Rising seniors Jaimie Carlson, Laura Gao, and Adam Zachar formed ProtoFluidics to create an adaptable, modular microfluidic device. The team hopes that, once printed using the 3-D printer already on the ISS, astronauts will be able to use their design to perform specialized research using tiny amounts of fluids in space.
