British scientists may be allowed to conduct experiments in space

British scientists may be allowed to conduct experiments in space

The UK government is mulling a plan to allow scientists to fly into space to conduct zero gravity experiments and find cures for deadly superbugs like MRSA and Salmonella.

The Department for Transport (DfT) said in a statement that the Spaceflight Bill would enable scientists to carry out experiments in zero gravity in a bid to develop vaccines and antibiotics to fight back certain deadly superbugs.

The bill aims to allow British scientists to use commercial flights from the nation’s space ports for experiments in Earth’s orbit starting in 2020.
