Fagen Experiment


Determining the effect of a total solar and galactic radiation on the genetic apparatus of bacteriophages in a spaceflight.


  • Study of the effect of the space flight factors on the lytic activity and preservation of bacteriophages samples after fixation, clarification of possible storage time for the samples after their fixation.

	Kits "SK" Kits "SK"

Used science hardware:

  • Kits "SK" No.1 and No. 2.

Expected results:

One of the experiment results should be selection of bacteriophages with increased resistance to radiation for possible use in a space station.

Experiment results:

The experiment results are biological material in kits "MSK" No.1 and "MSC" No. 2 and photo information on the scientific equipment handling to be returned to the ground.
