Microgravity Science Glovebox logo.
The Glovebox is a sealed workspace that allows astronauts on the International Space Station to conduct a large variety of experiments that could otherwise be hazardous to their health. Its large and versatile working area is accessed through loading ports and astronauts manipulate items inside using sturdier and safer versions of kitchen gloves, similar to the way researchers experiment with contagious materials and organisms on Earth.
