We would like wish Crew 1 of the space capsule Resilience a safe journey as they make their way to the International Space Station! Some of the many experiments planned aboard the orbiting laboratory include studies of how food affects physiology in microgravity, how gravity - and the lack of gravity - affects microbes that interact with rock as well as growing radishes in orbit. Another notable experiment was designed by two students, Finsam Samson and Yujie Wang from
Troy High School in Troy, Mi. which involves studying the effects of spaceflight on brain function.
Good luck to NASA astronauts Shannon Walker, Victor Glover, Mike Hopkins and to Soichi Noguchi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency! We will see you back on terra firma in six months!
