The "Cold Atom Laboratory" is a quantum gas experiment on the International Space Station (ISS).

At the end of last year, the Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) team at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), USA, received the "NASA Group Achievement Award". This award also honors the achievements of Dr. Markus Krutzik as a postdoctoral researcher at JPL. The CAL team developed an instrument that was successfully used to generate ultra-cold atoms on the International Space Station (ISS). After returning to Berlin, Markus Krutzik continued to support the CAL instrument development as a technical consultant. NASA's prestigious award is presented, among other things, for outstanding group achievements that have contributed significantly to the successful mission of the Space Agency.
