The article presents the concept of experimental research system to investigate aeroponic cultivation in microgravity condition. The main scientific objective is to define the forces acting in droplet-root system exposed to microgravity conditions especially the adhesion and cohesion phenomena. The concept of a research platform is presented in this paper and includes electrical, hydraulic and optical system.
