USED SCIENCE HARDWARE:
Biorisk hardware including:
Acquisition of new data on possible manifestations
(boundaries) of phenotypic adaptation and genotypic
changes in bacterial and fungus associations forming
a typical microbiota of structural materials used
in space technology.
Accommodation and exposure of "passive"
samples of structural materials and "microorganisms
- substrates" systems inside the ISS Service
- Prediction of resistance of space technology
materials to microbiological factor and development
of recommendations to mitigate the risk of microbiological
- Assessment of impact of cyclic changes of the
Solar activity to characteristics of bacterial and
fungus flora with regard to factors of phenotypic
and genotypic variability, resistance factors and
- Assessment of fundamental capability to maintain
viability of microorganisms on long-term space exposure
(as compared with the Earth-to-Mars flight).
