UCF Students’ Prototypes Include Space Friendly IV, Artificial Lung

Engineering students at the University of Central Florida are at it again, this time trying to give NASA and scientists fighting cancer the tools to help them in their quests.

As part of their final projects before graduation, one team of engineering students has designed a way to administer IVs in space, where there is no gravity. Being able to provide fluids and medicine via an IV will be important when astronauts begin long-range space missions to Mars and beyond.
