DIDO 3 [SpacePharma]
The DIDO satellites are 3U CubeSat satellites for micro-gravity rersearch designed by the Israeli / Swiss company SpacePharma.
The satellites contain the mGnify miniaturized end-to-end lab, that can be remote controlled from anywhere. The mGnify unit can perform experiments on bacterial growth, antibiotics resistance, self-assembly, enzymatic reactions, polymerization, nanoparticle synthesis, particle aggregation dynamics, emulsion stability and crystallization.
Upgrades have been made to the DIDO-3 platform to be able to support dedicating more power to the payload, allowing it to maintain higher temperatures than the previous mission, DIDO-2.
A third mission, DIDO 3, was ordered in 2018. It is to fly in 2019 on a multi satellite launch on a Vega rocket.
