Crew time in a space greenhouse using data from analog missions and Veggie.
PIs:G. Massa, L. Poulet, NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellowship
Note:ISS and space analog environments results. From the abstract: "In this retrospective study on crew time data collected in various analog facilities and on the Veggie hardware on ISS, we propose a methodology for efficient categorizing and reporting of crew time in space plant growth systems."
Journal Impact Factor:2.082
Funding:"This research was funded by NASA Space Biology through the NASA Postdoctoral Program/USRA and the European Union Horizon 2020 program via the COMPET-07-2014 – Space exploration – Life-support subprogram (reference number: 636501). Veggie research discussed here was funded by NASA’s Space Biology and Human Research Programs. The authors wish to thank the astronauts who worked on Veggie between July 2014 and December 2019, the wintering crews of the 2018 and 2019 season at the German Neumayer Station III in Antarctica, and the crews of the following analog missions: HI-SEAS 2, 3, and 4, MDRS 135, 139, and 140, and ILMAH 2014, without whom these data collections would not have been feasible."

Note:Salyut-7 and ISS results. From the article: "A number of experiments were carried out to develop a phenomenological model of antibiotic resistance. The first series consisted of microbiological testing of nasopharynx of cosmonauts participating in the Salyut-7 space program and the number of antibiotic resistance determinants in bacteria identified in the biotope of the nasopharynx. The second series of experiments (in-vitro studies) were carried out on the ISS Russian Segment and consisted of determining the values of mobilization and conjugation in space flight conditions, in terrestrial conditions and in post-flight studies."

Oh G: The x, y and z of Human physiological responses to acceleration.
Exp Physiol. 2021 Nov 3. Review. Online ahead of print.
Note:From the abstract: "This review focuses on the main physiological challenges associated with exposure to acceleration in the Gx, Gy and Gz direction in addition to microgravity. Our current understanding of the physiology of these environments and latest strategies to protect against them are discussed in light of the limited knowledge we have in some of these areas."

WWP1 deficiency alleviates cardiac remodeling induced by simulated microgravity.
Note:From the abstract: "Here, we first offer a brief review of previously proposed explanations that gravimetric tides constitute a tangible and potent force shaping the rhythmic activities of organisms. Through meta-analysis, we then interrogate data from three study cases and show the close association between the omnipresent gravimetric tides and cyclic activity."
