What Is an Explor Space BioGravity™ RPM Machine?

The Random Positioning Machine (RPM) was developed by Dr. Joshua Chou at University Technology Sydney to do bioengineering experiments in zero or reduced gravity here on Earth without going into space.

Ready to Launch in 10 minutes! The Explor Microgravity RPM uses random positioning to simulate gravitational unloading in cells.

The RPM rotates any enclosed experiment ‘randomly’ to minimize the influence of Earth’s gravity, thereby simulating what would be experienced in space. The BioGravity successfully simulate zero gravity, typically referred to as microgravity or in biology, known as gravitational unloading. The newer RPM can additionally simulate partial gravity, which is between 0g and 1g. Uniquely the BioGravity Platform can approach 10-3.

A random positioning machine, or RPM, rotates biological samples along two or more independent axes to change their orientation in space in complex ways and so eliminate the effect of gravity.
