OSOS schools from Greece send olive oil to space

How will Greek olive oil behave under microgravity conditions? Students from OSOS schools sealed their experiment within the capsule carried by the groundbreaking Blue Origin’s New Shepard reusable rocket where it was tested at an altitude of 100 km.

Blue Origin’s space flight tests for the first time the internationally known Kalamata olives, olive oil, figs and raisins in their natural forms. The purpose of the experiment that was designed and implemented by students, is to test the effects on the products once they travel into orbit.
