NUTRISS experiment launched

                                                                 


17 April 2019, Wallops Island (Virginia, USA) – The first two experiments for the Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano’s mission “Beyond” has been launched to the International Space Station on board the Cygnus NG-11 cargo spacecraft. One of the experiments is named “NUTRISS” and it has been developed by Kayser Italia in collaboration with the team of Prof. Gianni Biolo of the University of Trieste (Italy). The experiment aims to monitor the astronaut energy balance during his long-term spaceflight, measuring mass and body composition. The body composition data will transmitted to ground to the scientific team that will provide feedback for the nutrition. See the NUTRISS web page for more information on the investigation. The Cygnus NG-11 is expect to reach the ISS on April, 19th 2019 while the launch of the Soyuz MS-13 with Luca Parmitano is expected on July, 20th 2019, the day of the anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon.
