UK Centre for Astrobiology


The UK Centre for Astrobiology has a number of experimental facilities that are open for researchers to use.

Low Pressure Flow-Through Chamber

We have a simulation chamber that can be pumped down and chilled to simulate flow-through in Mars-like conditions.

High Pressure Flow-Through Chamber

We are currently in the process of building a system for microbiology experiments under high pressure.

Astrobiology Wet Lab Facilities

We have aerobic/anaerobic and other microbiology facilities available for use.

Random Positioning Machine

Random Positioning allows for micro-gravity and partial gravity simulation

Underground Astrobiology Lab

Deep subsurface astrobiology laboratory
