TUESDAY, Jan. 8, 2019 — Despite the terrifying plot lines of many a sci-fi film, there’s no need to worry that germs in space might transform into ferocious, malevolent microbes that threaten the human race. Quite the opposite, new research reveals. The harsh conditions of galactic travel don’t trigger genetic changes in bacteria that make […]Continue Reading ...
New research has revealed that microbes stranded in the International Space Station (ISS) have different genes from the equivalent bacteria on Earth. Whilst there have been many concerns about these microbes forming a new generation of “superbugs”, it now appears that the differences are making the bacteria more able to withstand the harsh conditions of […]Continue Reading ...
In 20 years, the School of Medicine will need 30 percent more space than it has today. That was the upshot of a Dec. 5 presentation by Niraj Dangoria, associate dean for facilities planning and management, on the opportunities and challenges of managing the school’s growth needs. Dangoria spoke at the town hall meeting at […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers have found that life aboard the International Space Station (ISS) can alter ‘super bugs’. Researchers and microbiologists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory NASA, had found that there were five different types of Enterobacter present in the toilets and exercise areas on the ISS. Earlier studies had shown that stay in space altered the bugs […]Continue Reading ...
June 28, 2018 In professor George Fox’s lab at the University of Houston, scientists are studying Earth germs that could be contaminating other planets. Despite extreme decontamination efforts, bacterial spores from Earth still manage to find their way into outer space aboard spacecraft. Fox and his team are examining how and why some spores elude […]Continue Reading ...
June 20, 2018 With renewed public interest in manned space exploration comes the potential need to diagnose and treat medical issues encountered by future space travellers. A new BJS (British Journal of Surgery) review explores current understanding of human physiology, pathology, trauma and surgery in space. Known physiological alterations during space travel include fluid redistribution, […]Continue Reading ...
May 2, 2018 What do astronauts, microbes, and plants all have in common? Each relies on deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) – essentially a computer code for living things – to grow and thrive. Studying DNA in space could lead to a better understanding of microgravity’s impact on living organisms and could also offer ways to identify […]Continue Reading ...

It is usually the root of mind coaching, an way that holds attainable as a non-invasive remedy to conquer disabilities led to through neurological illness or trauma. Analysis on […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers are developing the self-contained planters that will allow astronauts to grow food in space Fresh food is so attractive to astronauts that they toasted with salad when they were able to cultivate a few lettuce heads on the International Space Station three years ago. In 2021, beans are on the menu to be grown […]Continue Reading ...
Research in microgravity could produce new insights about aging process When traveling in space, astronauts experience physiological changes normally associated with aging, such as bone loss, muscle deterioration and altered immune systems. When the astronauts return to Earth, the changes often reverse. To better understand the relevance of the astronauts’ experience to human health — […]Continue Reading ...
Many medical treatments — in their current form — would be unfeasible on deep space missions, such as a journey to Mars. How will we diagnose and treat the ailments of future space travelers? And what medical issues will they likely encounter? I posed these questions to Sandip Panesar, MD, a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford […]Continue Reading ...
June 25, 2018 An interview with Professor Louis Yuge, PhD, conducted by Kate Anderton, BSc What changes do the bodies of astronauts undergo during space flight? There are many changes that occur when an astronaut enters space. Physiological and anatomical changes include bone atrophy, muscle atrophy, and cardiovascular deconditioning occurred in an astronaut’s body during […]Continue Reading ...
May 22, 2018 Planning a trip to Mars? You’ll want to remember your anti-radiation pills. NASA and private space companies like SpaceX plan to send humans to the red planet within the next 15 years–but among the major challenges facing future crewed space missions is how to protect astronauts from the dangerous cosmic radiation of […]Continue Reading ...
September 20, 2017 A analysis group at New York College School of Dentistry (NYU Dentistry) has been licensed for a $13.three million investment award by means of the Affected person-Targeted Results Analysis Institute (PCORI) to check hollow space prevention, high quality of lifestyles, and college efficiency. NYU Dentistry’s Richard Niederman, DMD, and Ryan Richard Ruff, […]Continue Reading ...
