    Space Station Research - Top Ten Results (Part 2)


    by Michael500ca

    There have been hundreds of science experiments and technology research projects onboard the International Space Station since the first modules of that station were launched 15 years ago. The research has covered things like human life sciences, in order to find out how being in that environment impacts people, and to find out ways to mitigate the negative effects of that, as well as research in biology and physical sciences, and astronomical sciences and technology development, and research to support future human exploration beyond low earth orbit. And much of this has been done with an eye toward how what we've learned in space can be applied to help people here on earth. For a recent international conference, the International Space Station Chief Scientist, Dr. Julie Robinson, was asked to put together a list of the top 10 research results from the space station, and she joins Pat Ryan of NASA Public Affairs to talk about some of those.
