Phoenix Experiment


Obtaining new data on the impact of space environment on the state of genetic apparatus and survivability of dried human lymphocytes and mouse bone marrow cells.


Exposure of biological material samples in a pressurized volume of the ISS RS for obtaining data on the impact of space environment on dried cells in terms of their survivability and integrity of the genetic apparatus depending on the sample exposure locations aboard the ISS RS.

Used science hardware:

  • Bioecologiya" kit.

Expected results:

The experimental results will be used for validating methods of body protection against space radiation, cool-dehumidified cells in long-duration spaceflights can be used to cure diseases of cosmonauts.

Experiment results:

The experiment results are biological material samples in "Bioecologiya" cases, and pictures taken during the experiment.
