Rodent Research Habitat
NASA's Rodent Research Hardware System provides a research platform aboard the ISS suitable for long-duration rodent experiments in space. The system has three major components: the Transporter that safely transports rodents from Earth to the space station; the Animal Access Unit that transfers the rodents upon arrival at the space station from the Transporter into the Habitat unit; and the Habitat that provides long-term housing for rodents aboard the station.
