EXPRESS - Expedite the Process of Experiments for Space Station
|EXPRESS facilities (EXpedite the PRocessing of Experiments for Space Station) were developed based on the philosophy of getting small payloads to the International Space Station with a shortened integration time.
There are currently eight EXPRESS facilities installed on Space Station. Each of these can accommodate ten (10) standard-sized small experiments, supplying them with power conversion and distribution, data and video distribution, nitrogen supply and exhaust distribution, and thermal control interfaces.
EXPRESS Facilities 1 and 2 launched April 19, 2001.
