Human Life Research on ISS Russian Segment

Brados Experiment


Objective:

Development tests of radiation and biological dosimetry techniques.

Tasks:

Assessment of biologically significant dosage loads on a human organism in space.

Science Hardware Used:

  • Brados Kit:
    - Thermoluminescence detectors;
    - Solid-state track detectors
    - Biological objects (seeds of higher plants)
    for recording of integral absorbed doses of ionizing radiation, spectra of linear transmission of heavy charged particles and radiation damage of the genetic system.

Expected Results:

Generation of a database on the impact of space ionizing radiation to test biodosimetry techniques.
