Distributed 12/04/97 Collaborative Experiment With Plants
Designed by LSU Ag Center Scientist
Progressing in Space, on Earth
School children around the world and astronauts aboard the space shuttle Columbia are conducting similar experiments with plants. The experiments focus on growth and reproduction of plants in space and are part of the Collaborative Ukranian Experiment - CUE, for short - that took off aboard the shuttle from Kennedy Space Center Nov. 19. The accompanying educational activities are dubbed TSIPS - Teachers and Students Investigating Plants in Space. Of the experiments aboard the shuttle, there are five primary experiments and five secondary experiments with plants in the CUE project. The plant experiments are using different growth chambers and looking at the effects of a microgravity environment on photosynthesis, pollination and fertilization. One of those experiments, B-STIC, has a Louisiana connection - the scientist in charge is Experiment Station plant pathologist Dr. Mary Musgrave of the LSU Agricultural Center, who is cooperating with Dr. Antonina Popova of the Institute of Botany in Kiev, Ukraine. "If there is ever to be extended space flight, plants will play an important role in recycling the environment of the spacecraft," Musgrave says, adding, "In addition, plants will supply food for these prolonged missions to other planets in our solar system and perhaps in our galaxy."

    86. MITAC Activities
    MITAC activities
    During 2003, a series of speakers representing a plethora of areas in telemedicine and telehealth will participate in sessions from March through October. These sessions are held during the lunchtime to accommodate many individual schedules. The majority will be held in the Dirksen Senate Office Building or in the U.S. Capitol Building. As a co-sponsor, MITAC will have the opportunity to participate as both speaker and attendee. MITAC will receive a final report from Health Tech Strategies at the conclusion of this series.
    For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST)
    MITAC served as a co-sponsor in the NASA/VCU FIRST Robotics Competition, March 6-8, 2003. MITAC Director, Ronald C. Merrell, M.D. served as a judge. MITAC's Brett Harnett worked the floor of the event, providing technical support as necessary and appropriate. FIRST has developed a national robotics competition that provides high school aged boys and girls an opportunity to express their interest and skills in science and technology. Such events are of critical importance as they serve as a forum for young adults to observe first hand the challenges of science and engineering and more importantly the unlimited possibilities. MITAC is very much involved in education and sharing knowledge.

    and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) initiated discussions regarding a collaborativeproject targeted to adapting the CSA’s microgravity Vibration Isolation
    Printable Version Microgravity Sciences - MVIS (Microgravity Vibration Isolation Subsystem)
    The project planning and definition phases of the FSL/MVIS Project began in 1998 when the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) initiated discussions regarding a collaborative project targeted to adapting the CSA’s Microgravity Vibration Isolation Mount (MIM) for use in the ESA Fluid Sciences Laboratory (FSL) in an attempt to isolate the FSL’s Facility Core Element (FCE) from the vibrations of the ISS. The FSL will be launched in the Columbus laboratory in 2004.   MIM Technology
    MIM is a six degree of freedom (6DOF) magnetic levitation (MAGLEV) system that has been designed to isolate experiments from vibratory accelerations (>0.01 Hz) on the Space Shuttle, Mir and ISS. The MIM was operated on the Mir space station between May 1996 and January 1998. A second generation of the MIM, known as the MIM-2, flew on the STS-85 Space Shuttle mission in August 1997. A picture of the MIM-2 is shown in figure 4. MVIS is the third generation of the MIM technology.
    Figure 1 : Picture of MIM-2 Columbus Laboratory
    The FSL will be part of the Columbus Laboratory which is developed by ESA (European Space Agency). The science module Columbus is a huge cylindrical laboratory of 4.5 metres.
