What is it like seeing your work launched into space? This week on the podcast we talk with 43North winning co-founder Sourav Sinha from Oncolinx, the $1 million winners. 

In May, Oncolinx's cancer treatment experiment was launched to the International Space Station where astronauts there will conduct tests that allow the Oncolinx team to see the how effective the treatment is in a complete 360° environment. On Earth, researchers are only able to test their treatments in a 2D environment on a Petrie dish. Thanks, gravity. 

Sourav talks about the launch, how nerve-wracking it was and the developments his team has made to their treatment that could benefit those with cancer in just a few years.
