ResumenThe International Space Station is currently in an advanced state of construction. The possibility of conducting in the Space environment longer term experiments than previously possible is becoming a reality, but there are several obstacles in this undertaking, some purely based on the availability of suitable hardware, some more technical. To eliminate some of them and make possible investigations using one of the more important model systems, Drosophila melanogaster, we have developed an automatic device to grow and carry out biological experiments in Space with Drosophila. The Experimental Support Equipment Item 1 (ESE–1) is an automated culture system for multigenerational experiments with insects developed for the ESA International Space Station facilities. The concept could be generalized for preparing culture units for small invertebrates.
