ROTIFER B-1 ready to launch

Cape Canaveral, December 3th , 2019. The team of Kayser Italia and Kayser Space at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the next launch of the experiment ROTIFER B-1 with the SpaceX- CRS19. The experiment, run by a research team from the University of Namur in Belgium with the support of Kayser Italia, will study the overall impact of the spaceflight, including  launch effects, microgravity, cosmic radiation and landing shocks on a biological sample in a hydrated state. The selected biological sample is the bdelloids species Adineta vaga, a new model organism for space research. In order to evaluate the effect of microgravity on the biological processes of the Adineta vaga, samples will be analysed, after flight exposure, using a large-scale transcriptome analysis (RNAseq).






LIDAL “Light Ions Detector for ALtea” on board ISS

2nd November 2019, Wallops Island (Virginia, USA) – Another experiment for the Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano’s mission “Beyond” has been launched to the International Space Station on board the Cygnus NG-12 cargo spacecraft: it is named LIDAL “Light Ions Detector for ALtea” and has been developed by Kayser Italia in collaboration with the team of Prof. Livio Narici (Principal Investigator – PI) of the University of Rome Tor Vergata (Italy). The experiment aims to widening the spectrum characterization (particles speed and kinetic energy) of the cosmic radiation, being able to process both the heavy and the light ions. The measured data of the incident radiation inside the International Space Station (ISS) will be downloaded in real-time to the User Support Operation Center in Italy for data processing. LIDAL will then became the first “radiation-risk meter” operating in real-time on the ISS.



KISPARC, the ISS Publication Archive is online!

November 26, 2019. KISPARC is the Italian database of technical and scientific publications that aims to collect the knowledge and capabilities developed with Space experiments performed on the International Space Station (ISS) and other Low Earth Orbit (LEO) platforms. Updated with the latest results about investigations performed in microgravity, it is now available to everybody interested in Space research.
