Spaceflight Wreaks Havoc On Liver Metabolism

Measurement of sulfur compounds in the liver. (a) Quantification of sulfur compounds in the liver homogenates of control mice on Earth (GC), mice under artificial earth-gravity in space (A1G), and mice under microgravity in space (MG). GS, Glutathione; GSSG, glutathione disulfide; PAP, 3′-phosphoadenosine-5′-phosphosulfate; APS, adenosine-5′-phosphosulfate. ‘S-Bimanyl-’ indicates that the compounds were detected as bimane-derivates. Each horizontal bar represents the mean. *P < 0.05. Comparisons of parameters were performed with one-way ANOVA followed by Dunnett’s test for multiple comparisons (n = 6 each). Dot plots were made using GraphPad Prism 6.07 for Windows, GraphPad Software, San Diego, CA USA, (b) Heatmap and hierarchical clustering were performed in R. The red color intensity correlates with the relative signal abundance. (c) Spatial placement of crowds on a non-metric multidimensional scaling (NMDS) using the Bray index. NMDS analysis, using the “vegan” package in R to analyze similarity indices, was performed on normalized metabolomics data that was subsequently log-transformed and auto-scaled31,32. The first two coordinates were plotted. PC principal coordinate.

Solar Tour Pit Stop #5: Earth’s Magnetosphere

Today on our solar tour, we’re exploring the magnetosphere – the last stop before heading into space! Earth’s magnetosphere is created by our planet’s molten core and protects us from the solar wind, the constant stream of radiation and charged particles coming from the Sun!. We’re not alone (magnetically speaking)

Russia’s anti-satellite test should lead to a multilateral ban

On 15 November, Russia conducted a direct-ascent anti-satellite (DA-ASAT) test, destroying one of its own space objects, a defunct satellite, in low-earth orbit. The test captured international attention and was quickly and widely condemned as threatening and irresponsible—not least for the cloud of lethal, uncontrollable debris it created, which will endanger both space assets and human spaceflight for years to come.

What To Consider When Building New Office Space

There are plenty of ways to create your new office space environment. You can work from home, place your workers in a coworking space, or rent an office. However, there’s a lot to be said for building your own office space. This will allow you to create a working environment that works for you, and also, it can be a smart financial move. While there are more upfront costs to think about, you’ll eventually own the space, which can be a valuable and valuable company asset.

Private space stations are coming. What can tourists expect?

A new era of space stations is about to kick off. NASA has announced three commercial space station proposals for development, joining an earlier proposal by Axiom Space. These proposals are the first attempts to create places for humans to live and work in space outside the framework of government space agencies. They’re part of what has been called “Space 4.0”, where space technology is driven by commercial opportunities. Many believe this is what it will take to get humans to Mars and beyond.
