Managing Microbes in Space.

The students with Mrs. Ghosh in grade 9th  will participate in “Managing Microbes in Space.” 

Managing Microbes In Space will be involved in a journey of discovery as they support the work of NASA scientists looking for ways to protect astronauts in space.This experiment is a first of a kind study of the interactions of germs and host organisms in real time while in microgravity. By analyzing video downlinked from an experiment onboard the International Space Station and submitting their data to the Principle Investigator Dr. Cheryl Nickerson of the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University, students will be engaged in real space-based research and work in support of NASA’s Human Space Exploration program.
