Past Canadian Experiments on the Station
Canada's first study of its kind, APEX-Cambium helped to determine the role gravity plays in how trees form different kinds of wood.
Canadian white spruce seedlings were sent to the Space Station to help researchers understand how trees make wood.
The study found that astronauts' bodies must be restrained while performing fine motor movements but arm restraints are not necessary.
An experiment that studied how astronauts distinguish up from down in a near-weightless environment.
This experiment studied how long periods in space affect the human body. It also offers approaches that will better protect space travelers in the future.
An experiment that enabled researchers to measure the levels of radiation astronauts are exposed to during a spacewalk.
H-reflex was the first medical experiment completed on the Space Station to study how the human body adapts to weightlessness. So how does zero gravity affect an astronaut's body?
A Canadian research project that studied sudden changes in skin sensitivity experienced by some astronauts.
The results from the Marangoni experiments on the ISS could be used to develop higher quality, more efficiently produced semiconductor crystals.
The astronauts of the International Space Station receive much higher doses of radiation than we do on Earth. These unstable particles have the potential to damage or mutate DNA—this can cause cataracts, and cancer.
To properly learn about how thermal diffusion works, it is necessary to isolate it so that it is the only thing affecting molecular movement in a liquid—gravity must be removed. SODI-IVIDIL does just that.
Did you know that if you drink a glass of milk, you consume colloids? If you paint the walls of your home, you use colloids to create a protective coating for the wall.
