NAUGHT ~Pulling testing machine in zero gravity~


The NAUGHT ~Pulling testing machine in zero gravity~ reproduces the zero-gravity environment found in space. It replicates a microgravity environment by continuously rotating objects in three dimensions. It was developed to quickly study the effect of zero gravity on a variety of specimens without the cost of going into space. It is a low-cost way to advance space development projects such as the space elevator.

Designed by Kei Tsujimoto of Kyoto Seika University for jointventure with Shimadzu Corporation
