The Space Life Sciences Laboratory – the best kept secret in the State of Florida! The “SLSL” is an impressive combination of research and technology occupants from government, commercial, and academia industry. The lab boasts 30 science labs and 6 hardware labs, office, and conference space, and 14 environmental growth and simulation chambers.

Built in 2003, the 109,000 square foot facility is a joint effort between State of Florida and NASA for payloads bound to the International Space Station (ISS). CSS played a pivotal role in establishing this joint venture and has served as the sole facility operator since its doors opened. The SLSL is in Exploration Park on federal property directly outside the security perimeter of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. Today, the SLSL is a full-service, multi-tenant research laboratory supporting Earth and Space Life Science technology and product development.
