In November 2021, a team of graduate students from Oxford including two from the Department of Physics teamed up with the International Space School Educational Trust (ISSET) to turn the ideas of secondary school children into real experiments for launch to the International Space Station.

The Oxford-ISSET Ferrofluid Experiment team is made up of graduate students Laurel Kaye and Jack Enright from the Department of Physics, Aleksander Zagajewski of the Department of Physics/Kavli Institute for Nanoscience Discovery, and supported by Dr Daniel Cervenkov from the Department of Physics, who joined the team as a co-investigator.
