Google Glass to enter space station next week

The wearable eye device from Google is all set to enter the International Space Station (ISS) for a flatworm study next week.

Part of the package to be sent to the ISS onboard the SpaceX launch from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida Dec 16, Google Glass will be tested as an augmented reality tool in the pre-flight integration and post-flight operations, Glass Almanac reported.

The mission will take a team from the Tufts Center for Regenerative and Developmental Biology, in partnership with the non-profit Kentucky Space, to the ISS.

The team will "analyse the regeneration mechanisms of flatworms in the microgravity environment of space".

Google Glass will not be part of the actual mission but rather work as an augmented reality assistant during pre-flight and post-flight.

This small experiment will help scientists utilise Google Glass as a human interface with Kentucky Space experiments on the ISS in 2015.
