Post Series: Space Tourists

A trained scientist, Gregory Olsen used his time on the ISS in 2005 to perform experiments designed to test his company’s products, which are specialized, high sensitivity cameras.

Olsen had planned a private trip to the ISS before 2005, but was forced to postpone it to 2005 due to health concerns.

While on the ISS, Olsen maintained contact with school students in his hometown via amateur radio during the times he was not participating in scientific research for the European Space Agency.
