Biotechnological research on ISS Russian Segment

Experiment Bioekologia


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.


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.
