NASA Research Indicates Microgravity Can Induce Abnormal Blood Flow and Clotting

A study released November 13th, 2019 by NASA researchers has revealed that of 11 International Space Station crew members who participated in the study, “6 crew members demonstrated stagnant or retrograde flow in the internal jugular vein on approximate flight day 50, and 1 crew member developed an occlusive internal jugular vein thrombus during spaceflight”.

We are exploring options for combating this unfortunate side effect of microgravity.


Spotlight: ST-42– An Autonomous LEO Manufacturing Lab

We wanted to shine a spotlight on this incredible venture by the premier company in microgravity research and an essential partner of the ISS, Space Tango. From their website:

Space Tango, a leader in the commercialization of space through R&D, bioengineering and manufacturing in microgravity, today announced ST-42, a fully autonomous robotic orbital platform designed specifically for scalable manufacturing in space. Launching in the mid 2020’s, ST-42 aims to harness the unique environment of microgravity to produce high value products across industries; from patient therapeutics to advanced technology products that have the potential to revolutionize industries here on Earth. ST-42 is an extension of the International Space Station’s (ISS) capabilities, and NASA’s creation of a robust commercial marketplace in low Earth orbit (LEO).

Space Tango looks to provide an orbital manufacturing space capable of materials manufacturing and of complying with the FDA’s strict regulations so that commercial developers can conduct pioneering biotech and pharmaceutical research.

Stellar Genesis Heeds NASA’s Funding Announcement for Lunar Instruments

Stellar Genesis Technologies has introduced research initiative DataFromDust to assemble a design team in response to a NASA Funding Announcement.

The FA calls for a proposal for a scientific instrument which will gather information about the lunar geology and seismology.  This instrument will be incorporated into a payload which will ride aboard one of NASA’s next few planned lunar lander missions.

Information gathered from the instruments will fulfill some of NASA’s Strategic Knowledge Gaps and thereby play an important role in NASA’s planned manned missions to the Moon and to Mars.

DataFromDust is still in its inital phases, so jump on over to the Join tab if you want to contribute ideas or services to the mission.
