Excerpt: The STS-92 crew attached the Z1 truss and pressurized mating adapter 3 to the ISS, preparing the space station for its first resident crew. Chiao received a bachelor?s degree in chemical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1983 and a master?s degree and a doctorate in chemical engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1985 and 1987, respectively. Selected for the astronaut corps in January 1990, Chiao became an astronaut in July 1991. He has worked at the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory and...

Table of Contents
Table of Contents Letter from the Associate Administrator Meetings, Etc. Spotlight Green Light for the Red Planet For many years, scientists in NASA?s Office of Biological and Physical Research (OBPR) have set their sights on a human trip to deep space. Supporting President George W. Bush?s vision for the space agency, OBPR is researching ways to help humans endure the rugged environment of the Red Planet and make Mars a destination within reach. Research Updates: Shining a Light on the Brain New optical techniques enable researchers to see how the brain functions in the real world. A Tiny Threat Packs a Big Punch Understanding the virulence of bacteria and the effectiveness of treatments against these microbes is of critical importance to improving the health and safety of both flight crews in microgravity and people on Earth. Neutron Spectrometers: To Detect and Protect A new device provides information about astronauts? exposure to high-energy neutrons, a potentially harmful form of radiation. Navigating through the Stars, by the Stars Many spacecraft use a ?smart? camera called a star tracker that helps them navigate by reading the stars as if they were a map. New technology has improved the device, making it lighter and more accurate ? because the first rule of exploration is ?Don?t get lost!? Education & Outreach: Staying Alive: On Mars ? and on Earth A specialized NASA center for research in advanced life support for missions to Mars ? a cooperative venture of three universities ? is exciting the younger generation by involving students from middle school through college in real-world research. What?s Happening on the International Space Station? Two viscosity studies, one on the capillary flow of fluids and one on colloids, have joined several ongoing life and physical science experiments already on the ISS to keep the Expedition 9 crew?s science schedule full. Profile: Peter Voorhees In microgravity experiments, Peter Voorhees compares theoretical calculations of changes in the structure of alloys with real-world data ? a task that is impossible on Earth but may lead to advances in materials development. 2 2 4 6 14 16 18 20 22 24 27 Space Research is published quarterly by the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in conjunction with Hampton University, COLSA Corp., and Cherokee Nation Industries, Inc.
