The ISS provides a unique environment for conducting certain experiments that are not possible on Earth. Some experiments were conducted on behalf of private companies and some on behalf of space agencies.
To understand the impact of space and microgravity on human health and to study ways to grow plants in space, NASA has conducted many experiments to help sustain future human space missions. According to NASA, hundreds of scientific investigations are currently underway on the ISS.
