Astronauts Tom Marshburn and Matthias Maurer discuss how engineers use the nine steps of the engineering design process to create solutions to technical problems. Watch Tom and Matthias aboard the International Space Station to see how technology was engineered for the station’s microgravity environment and learn how station technology continues to evolve, meeting the ever-changing needs of astronauts living and working in space.
