Current Experiments on the Station
Taking the Shakes out of Experiments (MVIS)
MVIS will help protect the European Space Agency's Fluid Science Laboratory from the daily shakes and trembles on board the Space Station.
See MVIS section
Space medicine combines many medical specialties to examine the effects of spaceflight on humans and prevent problems associated with living in the unique, isolated, and extreme environment of space.
See Space Medicine section
The Secrets of Staying Healthy in Space... and on Earth (VASCULAR)
Space-related cardiovascular research could help people with heart disease on Earth.
See VASCULAR (Cardio-fitness for astronauts and Earthlings) section
Colloidal Science (BCAT-C1)
Colloids. From the paint on your walls to your salad dressing, colloids are commonplace. But why do we study them in space?
See BCAT-C1 section
Predicting fainting in astronauts (BP Reg)
Monitor astronauts' blood pressure to predict the risk of fainting (and taking a possibly crippling fall) back on Earth after long-duration spaceflights.
See BP Reg section
Space Radiation and their Risks (Radi-N2)
Natural radiation can pose a serious health risk for astronauts on long-duration space missions like those on the International Space Station.
See Radi-N2 section
Diagnosing Medical Conditions on Earth and in Space (Microflow)
The portable, technology could offer near real-time medical diagnosis for astronauts in space, people in remote communities or in areas affected by natural disasters where medical equipment is not readily available.
