SPACEHAB and Florida Government Announce Biotech Partnership

SPACEHAB has announced a partnership with the government of Florida to ramp up efforts to perform biomedical research on the space station and using a space biomedical designated lab on the ground to perform new research. "Florida has provided SPACEHAB with both financial backing and valuable research facilities," said Thomas Pickens, SPACEHAB's CEO.

Florida, Virginia, New Mexico, California, and Texas are all states making efforts to gain traction by attracting and fostering space industry companies to their borders. Talk to your state leaders about the positive impact that space companies have on a state's economy and tell them why they should bring space companies to your state.
