A Pictorial & Verbal History of the Space Station

Videos: “Space to Ground” ISS report – June.21.2019

The latest episode of NASA’s weekly Space to Ground reports on activities related to the International Space Station:

** ISS Research: “Breathing for the Sake of Science”: Understanding Asthma from Space | NASA

For five years, researchers with the European Space Agency have analyzed exhaled Nitric Oxide in astronauts’ breath to detect dust and other toxins. Future astronauts on the Moon or Mars could inhale dust that has collected in their habitats or on their spacesuits potentially inflaming their airways. Monitoring a crewmember’s airways could improve the mission environment and optimize crew health for a successful long-term mission. The research has also contributed to asthma diagnosis and treatment back on Earth. This week the crew completed the final session on the final subject for the investigation.
