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

understand how this research could be used to develop T-cell-based therapeutics for cancer patients. A second goal was to monitor the environment that T-cells encountered during suborbital flight. The data recorded will be used to better understand the behavior and functionality of the T-cells when exposed to different stressors. With these aims in mind, this flight opportunity on Blue Origin’s New Shepard crew capsule (CC) was originally scheduled at the end of 2016 to early 2017; however, the flight did not occur until December 12, 2017. This suborbital flight was

later. T-cells and both breast and colon cancer cells were exposed to different levels of vibrations (20, 30, 40, 60, and 125 Hz) for 1 minute in all three axes using the Troemner talboys advanced digital 1000MP microplate shaker. The tubes were held and taped onto the flat surface of the shaker. Sensors placed in the Blue Origin’s Crew Capsule ( Blue Origin, 2016 , 2018) have measured a vibration environment of 80 Hz in the plane parallel to the floor of the payload locker that housed our experiment, and larger vibrations above 80 Hz were observed in the direction
