New Research Headed to Station Helping NASA Explore the Universe

New Research Headed to Station Helping NASA Explore the Universe February 10, 2015 New research will be heading to the International Space Station to help NASA understand how the conditions of spaceflight affect living organisms. This work is helping the agency develop the resources and measures necessary to ensure astronauts remain healthy as we venture beyond low-Earth orbit and head out to study an asteroid and eventually Mars. The selected studies represent how the Space Biology and Human Research Programs work together to span the range of basic and applied research in laboratory and spaceflight settings.
