A Concept of Suborbital Scientific Mission and Technology Validation


Suborbital platforms are one of alternatives for satellites. They offer cheaper access to space to perform broad range of scientific and technology R&D. One of suborbital platforms are sounding rockets, which are suitable for these applications. A concept of scientific mission utilizing the sounding rocket is presented by author in this paper. The novelty of this mission is the operational responsive launch approach, which presents the example of the mission which responds for payload user needs, not payload contest approach, which is often in scientific community competing for payload space in space agency sounding rocket launch campaigns. The main mission goal is to perform astronomical observation of NEO using IR/VIS telescope. The secondary goal is to qualify the instrument for use on astronomical satellite observatory and raise its technology readiness level from TRL 6 to TRL 8. The expected mission output is to gain scientific data on NEO object and perform new IR/VIS optoelectronic instrument technology validation.

Challenges of ERAU’s First Suborbital Flight Aboard Blue Origin’s New Shepard M7 for the Cell Research Experiment In Microgravity (CRExIM)

Introduction In early 2016, the Department of Applied Aviation Sciences (AAS) at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) was granted a suborbital flight opportunity to work on a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) research project. The Spaceflight Operations team in the AAS department was already developing other suborbital payloads as part of the Arete STEM Project (ARETE) to demonstrate joint commercial spaceflight activities. The main aim of this research was to investigate the effect of microgravity on T-cells and to

impurities in the crystallization experiments, were labeled with the fluorescent dyes Alexa Fluor® 488 TFP ester and Alexa Fluor® 594 NHS ester, respectively. The Alexa Fluor® 488 TFP ester (C 39 H 44 F 4 N 4 O 11 S 2 , M W = 884.9 Da) and Alexa Fluor® 594 NHS ester (C 39 H 37 N 3 O 13 S 2 , M W = 819.8 Da) were obtained from Thermo Fisher Scientific (Life Technologies). The Alexa Fluor® 488 TFP ester (5 mg) was dissolved in 0.5 mL of dimethyl sulfoxide. The reactive dye solution (80 μL) was slowly added to the stirring Pf GST tetramer solution (10 mg/ml in PBS).

environment, and not by microgravity. Therefore, there is a great need to design robust and reproducible scientific experiments accounting for all possible confounders and test them prior to actual flights. The majority of microgravity-based research studies are being conducted using either longer missions at ISS (International Space Station) or by employing simulated gravity technologies that we mention next. Gravitational interactions of biological systems have been investigated for decades using some of these valuable technologies, such as fast rotating clinostats, 3D

Impact of g-Load Shift on Temporal Expression Pattern of Apoptosis-linked Proteins in the Rat Mammary Gland

gland tissue collection. Immunohistochemistry The procedures for specimen preparation, immunohistochemistry optimization, and antibody validation are same as detailed in our recent study ( Alula et al., 2018 ). Briefly, we used Ventana’s automated staining system (Discovery XT; Ventana Medical Systems, Tucson, AZ) to process and stain the slides. The primary antibodies utilized were mouse monoclonal anti-p53 (CS2524; Cell signaling Technology, Danvers, MA), rabbit polyclonal anti-CC-3 (CS9661; Cell signaling Technology, Danvers, MA), and rabbit polyclonal anti
