Human spaceflight missions promise a new chapter towards long-term Moon habitation and Mars transit & surface missions.Come learn about ongoing fundamental biological research, space hazards to humans (& our ecosystems), and global collaborations in space biomedical sciences. We will present on the benefits to life and biomedicine on Earth, and the NASA Open Science Data Repository which strives to make spaceflight life science data maximally accessible and reusable.

We will also present research projects, primarily linked to innovative work at NASA Ames Research Center. These endeavors are pushing the boundaries of space biosciences by leveraging artificial intelligence and in-situ analytics to enable precision health for astronauts of longer and further space missions.


Free and open to people of all ages!
