Microgravity offers a wealth of advantages for studies of ultra-cold atomic gases and their applications.  These include the ability to achieve exceptionally low temperatures via expansion into very weak traps, which don’t need to be supported against gravity and the ability to achieve very long interaction times with samples that have been released from traps.  The Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) will be a flexible, multi-user ultra-cold atom facility that will enable the precise study of quantum gases at effective temperatures well below the coldest achievable on Earth.  CAL will launch to the International Space Station in early 2018, giving scientists a unique window into the quantum world.
