Biotechnological research on ISS Russian Segment

Experiment Bioekologia


Objective:

Investigation into the economically important microbiological objects exposed to space flight factors, including radioactive radiation and charged particles fluxes; production of highly efficient strains-producers of plant protection means, exopolysaccharides, means for biodegradation of the products containing xenobiotics (oil, oil products and organophosphoric substances) polluting environment.

Task:

Investigation into effect of space flight factors on physiological and biochemical properties of the microorganism cultures while the Bioekologia stowages are exposed to space flight factors within 1, 3, 6 and 12 months.

Science Hardware Used :

  • Bioecologia stowage;
  • Independent temperature recorder.

Experiment Results:

  • The downlinked temperature data (by telemetry generated by nominal temperature sensors located within the equipment accommodation area or by storage unit of independent temperature recorder).
  • Recoverable stowage and independent temperature recorder indicating temperature values within a given time interval.
