The Microflow: Quebec pride up in space

A Quebec-designed, miniaturized and portable medical tool has made it all the way into space. As we speak, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is testing the device, called the Microflow, on the International Space Station. Dr. Ozzy Marmut of the National Optical Institute in Quebec City has been leading the Bio-photonics program that created this mini-laboratory. She was in Kazakhstan for the launch, and is back in Quebec City and joined us in studio.
