Event Name:  Visit to the MELiSSA pilot plant
Event Description:  MELiSSA is the acronym for Micro-Ecological Life Support System Alternative, an innovative project of the European Space Agency (ESA) that was initiated as part of a research programme on life support technologies, in order to facilitate long duration manned space missions. In 2009, the second generation laboratory for the MELiSSA Pilot Plant at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) started its activities, providing a world class research and development facility. Since then, several achievements have been made in the progressive construction of the different blocks comprising the MELiSSA Pilot plant. To be highlighted, the operation of three compartments of the MELiSSA Pilot Plant during a long term period under continuous and controlled operation was successfully achieved, standing proof of the scientific and technological capacities of the Consortium. The MELiSSA Pilot Plant has been established as an External Laboratory of ESA at UAB. Now, you can visit the pilot plant as an activity within the World Space Week! The visit is scheduled on 10 October 2019 at 17:00h (CEST) and it takes 2 hours. You can register at the following link:
