High Throughput Ground-Based Reduced-Gravity TestingDevelopment of a high-throughput 10-second, variable gravity drop facility would provide NASA with breakthrough capability that will enable important new fundamental research opportunities in both physical sciences and life sciences in addition to providing the ability to support exploration needs for partial gravity testing. This Keystone Capability would establish a new world class capability that would not be easily matched and would dramatically exceed capabilities elsewhere.
