Our Centre is involved in studying the impact of reduced gravity on growth and health of high-yielding plant crops. We have designed and developed in partnership with Paras Defence and Space Technologies Limited, the Amity Space Biology Experiment-1 (ASBE-1) which has been selected for flight as part of Satellize SpaceShare Package on ISRO PSLV C49 PS-4 platform. 

Amity Space Biology Experiment-1 (ASBE-1)

The Amity Space Biology Experiment-1 (ASBE-1) is our first spaceflight experiment. It has been designed and developed at Amity University Mumbai in partnership with Paras Defence and Space Technologies Limited. The experiment has been selected for flight as part of Satellize SpaceShare Package on ISRO PSLV C49 PS-4 platform. This will be India's first biological experiment in Space.
