"So the us is in the lead by far Heck only nine. Other people from the america continents have been to the iss. Eight of them were from canada and one of them was from brazil. Every other person from this part of the world from the americas both north and south came from the united states. Russia is in second place with fifty people from russia going to the iss and then fewer than twenty came from europe. Some of those folks have actually been multiple times in fact a lot of them have visited the iss at least twice. Not quite as many have been three times a few like mark. Kelly have been there four times and there are two cosmonauts who have been to the international space station five times. Those two are yuri mellon shinco and fyodor your chicken. So mellon kinko's career was truly astronomical pun intended he visited mir as part of the mir sixteen crew in nineteen ninety-four he was part of the s. T. s. one. Oh six space shuttle. Atlantis crew in two thousand which marked his first visit to the iss in two thousand and three he went back to the iss and while he was there he got married to his say. A catarina dimitrova It was a long distance ceremony because she happened to be in texas while he was in orbit mellon chico's time and space collectively amounts to an astonishing eight hundred twenty seven days with nearly thirty five hours of that time being spent in extravehicular activities or spacewalks. Now that is incredible but it's still more than fifty days shy of the career record. That's held by Gennady a- daca. And i apologize. I know i- butchering these names. And that's on me. But anyway but dhaka has more than eight hundred. Seventy eight days logged in space in total and he's also been to the international space station but only four times right.

"Because those costs of operation proved to be considerable and there just weren't enough investors jumping on board to make this a viable business so the company really had no choice but to allow mir to deorbit however the company had sold a ticket to a guy named dennis tito to go up to mir and rather than you know refund that money miracle was able to partner with a company in the united states called space adventures ltd to secure permission for tito to instead visit the international space station if he went up on a soyuz russians. Space capsule now. Tito himself was a stranger to the space industry. He had worked for the jet propulsion laboratory. that's a nasa field center but he also was not a trained astronaut however the deal meant he could board a soyuz spacecraft and in late april of two thousand one he traveled to the i s became the first person to pay for a ticket to visit the iss than as such he is sometimes referred to as a space tourist. I am told that they hate this. Tidal they don't like space tourists because a lot of them had to go through training and had to actually be participants in various experiments and stuff so they were working up there too but they're widely referred to space tourists and he was the first. the reported. Cost of the trip was a whopping twenty million dollars. But you know the only other way to get up there would be to be an official astronaut or cosmonaut or maybe be selected as a payload specialist which required a you know less intense training period. So it's a pretty small an elite group that he joined mark shuttleworth a south african businessman who also has connections to tack in that. His company. canonical is responsible for developing the ubuntu operating system He followed suit. He also visited the iss in two thousand two also aboard a soyuz capsule but then in two thousand three we had the space shuttle columbia disaster. The united states put the entire space shuttle program on hold for more than two years and at that point. The soyuz capsules became the only way up and back from the iss so russia thus put a hold on space tourism for that time since the capsule space the space inside the capsule was critical for servicing the iss. The tourism program came back on track in two thousand five with gregory olsen and then in two thousand six A new shea and sorry went up to become a space tourist next up. Was charles simoni.

"It came not from russia but from the european space agency or esa. This is the european robotic arm or e. r. a. this will be used to help the docking procedures with those lavoix. Once that connects to nocco later this year again. Assuming everything goes well potentially knock on those lavoix might see some continued use beyond the lifespan of the iss. But i'll talk about that more toward the end of this episode. Then we have some other proposed modules. That are supposed to join the iss in the near future. These modules come not from nasa but from a commercial space company called axiom space so you no doubt heard many times in the series budget issues are a constant challenge with nasa. It's also a big challenge in russia. The agency has thus chosen to partner with commercial space companies not just to provide transportation to and from the iss but also the build onto the existing space station itself the plan is for axiom to build and deploy several modules that will connect to the harmony node aboard the iss these include a node module so very similar to harmony and unity and tranquility. This will act as kind of an adapter between the us os part of the space station and the axiom. Space part of it. Other modules will include one with large windows to allow for spectacular views of earth a crew habitat module and a module dedicated to researching manufacturing processes in space and like neca and his lavoix. These axiom modules could potentially have a life beyond that of the iss also axiom is planning on sending non astronauts or commercial astronauts up in the space including a reality tv series winner. I guess because discovery has planned a reality series called who wants to be an astronaut and the winner of that series will go up in a future space x dragon cruel crew vessel up to the axiom section of the iss. They're already taking applications for that. So you can check that out. If you're interested. I i did not apply now. This is not the first time that non astronauts will have visited the space station in fact that has happened in the past already. Only a handful of times but it has happened so talk about this. We have to dial the clock back quite a bit now. it's the late. Nineteen ninety s and the soviet union had collapsed. The russia was having trouble funding space agency and it was having a lot of trouble. Maintaining the mir space station a private company called mir core took shape and took charge of the space station so this one had private funding and was trying to turn mir into a commercial space station instead of a state-backed one and even flew emission up there. After mir had already been left unoccupied for several months the idea was that mir core would sell trips to the space station to wealthy people who wanted to go to space and then use some of that money to offset the maintenance and operation costs of mir Be ed but that didn't really work out..

"So. The crew undocked appears module franz vista after a few delays. And then the old module would inner. It's the orbiting path and would eventually reenter the atmosphere and break apart over the pacific ocean the nonaka module docked in the place that peers had been and it did so on july twenty ninth using an automatic docking procedure and all that went fairly well despite some delays in a couple of technical glitches but nothing critical but then a few hours later. Knock had a software glitch and that glitch gave a direct command to the module's thrusters to fire which caused the iss to rotate like a lot. It flipped one and a half times and effectively ended up upside down over earth in the process. I guess you could say. The iss developed a bit of an attitude. Problem can like a surly teenager according to zevulun scoville. Who apart from having an amazing name is also a nasa engineer. He was present when this happened. Nocco was apparently trying to pull away from the station that had just docked with he didn't know that immediately in fact when he first saw an alert come in it was just a couple of lines and he thought it was perhaps just a a sensor error but then he checked the video monitors and saw that the thrusters active and that this was the real deal now initially as nasa was getting a handle on what was going on the agency reported that the attitude of the iss shifted only by about forty five degrees which is already a lot but it was incorrect. It was more like five hundred forty degrees. Kinda crazy nasa engineers had no control over nakas thrusters only russian ground control had the ability to send a direct command till the knock module and unfortunately the space station was not in line of sight with russia..

And today we are going to try and finally wrap up our look at the international space station and this series of episodes about space stations. in general. though there's gonna be some stuff that obviously. I just won't touch on. Because i mean you could do a full many series that lasts half a year talking about this and only barely scratched the surface anyway in our previous episode in this series i talked about how the international space station or i s s formed out of both the struggling russian space program and that's as attempts to create a. Us led space station along with europe. Japan and canada contributing toward that and we learned about some of the modules that make up the space station We also talked about how the construction on the iss was put on. Hold in the wake of the space shuttle columbia tragedy and how the station has two main sections. There's one that's the russian orbital segment or are os and the other is the us orbital segment or us all right so just a few modules to talk about before we get up to date. So in twenty eleven nasa sent up a module called leonardo aboard the space shuttle discovery. Leonardo is primarily used as a storage module. And you might say will storage for what. And it's pretty much everything from spare parts to rubbish waste owen in case you're wondering if this is the only ninja turtle to be associated with the iss. It is not the italian space agency built three multi purpose logistics modules or mp l. m.'s. And they were named leonardo donatello and rafaello and these were designed to be pressurized containers. That would be nestled in the space. Shuttle cargo bay. And there'd be used to transmit know cargo like scientific experiments and supplies to the iss but leonardo got modified to become a permanent storage module attached the international space station and donatello one never launched at all rafaello however was used in the final shuttle mission to the space station leonardo originally docked with unity..

"The european space agency's module columbus joined the iss. Now this was originally intended to be part of space station freedom more than a decade earlier. You know back when that was still a thing. Columbus launched aboard the space shuttle. Atlantis on february seventh. Two thousand eight. It is seven meters long twenty three feet and it's four and a half meters diameter or fifteen feet and they can hold up to ten. Isp ours for science experiments and then more for various systems the esa technically has fifty one percent operational control of columbus. Nasa has the rest of it that means that the two agencies actually split these racks between them so Usa as control of five racks for experiments and nasa has control of the other five and that they just share the space cohabitate like destiny. The activities on columbus are geared towards scientific experiments and expanding our knowledge particularly when it comes to space exploration columbus docked with the starboard port of harmony on february eleventh. Two thousand and eight so again that means if you were in the harmony module and you're right side up which is again a week distinction here in space and you have the destiny module behind you. That's to your raft. You're facing forward. That would mean that columbus would be on your right hand side. You need to go through the hatch on the right to get to the columbus module again. All these directions get pretty loosey-goosey when you start to lose reference points like up and down so your mileage may vary. I guess next up shortly. After columbus came the japanese experiment module or kibo. Now kibo is really big module. It's so big that it required three separate shuttle missions to bring all the major pieces of the module up to the iss like columbus kibo connected to harmony on the port portside south. The left side of harmony got destiny behind you. And you're right sign up and it has twenty three. Isp ours aboard it those racks. There's enormous experiment racks. Ten of those are reserved for science. The rest are for kibo systems and crew storage. Kibo has its own robotic arm. It also has its own communication system A hosts a ton of different science experiments and that includes stuff like earth science experiments that monitor. The co two content of the atmosphere of our planet has x ray astronomy experiments Electronic telescopes cosmic ray experiments. Lots of really super cool stuff. It also hosts various physics and biology experiments. and then there's an exposed facility. This is a part of the kibo module that attached to the far end of it This is a science platform. That's exposed to space for those kinds of experiments. You know the kind where there ain't no air out there It's a little tricky to talk about the size of key bill because of all these different pieces that came together..

"Fully online now. This module is eight point four meters or twenty eight feet long and it has a diameter of four point two meters or fourteen feet and it kind of looks like a can of soda to me but obviously with docking ports on either axial end Those are the only two docking ports on destiny. It does not have any of the ones at the zenith nadir's or starboard or port sides. So it just has one on either end of the cylinder. Destiny serves as the first and primary research lab aboard the iss at least on the us side. This is where the science gets done. But you know not to make a need gun for the people who are still alive. We're talking about biomedical experiments engineering experiments physics experiments earth science experiments material science experiments. All that kind of stuff when you think of the science that's happening aboard the international space station. Destiny is the primary spot where that stuff happens. Not the only one but the main one so this is the kind of stuff that astronauts aboard the skylab space station focused on back in the nineteen seventies destiny was the first module to make use of racks to hold various station systems and experiments in place so these are like mounting points for various experiments. Obviously when you're in a microgravity environment you gotta have ways to attach stuff to your spacecraft or else it's just gonna float around and bump around in microgravity so these are standardized racks and in fact they're called international standard payload racks or isp ours and other countries with the exception of russia. Use the same standard so that experiments and systems can fit on any of these. The destiny has eight rack bays and they can hold up to twenty four racks. These things by the way are massive on earth way around five hundred forty kilograms or twelve hundred pounds of course microgravity. You don't have to worry about that now. As i mentioned some of those racks hold station systems in place. You know stuff like life..

"It was not a treaty was an executive agreement. Now that's an important distinction. Because in the united states at treaty with any foreign government requires that the united states senate has to ratify that treaty by a two thirds. Majority vote executive agreements. Do not require that kind of ratification and in fact they can pretty much hold the same sort of powers as a treaty. Can though this is interesting. Because there's no express clause in the united states constitution that actually grants us presidents this particular power however. There's also nothing in there saying that they can't do that. So clinton signed the executive agreement. Bypassing congressional battle over the whole matter and as nasa puts it the new. Iga established the overall cooperative framework for the design development operation and utilization of the iss and addressed several legal topics including civil and criminal jurisdiction intellectual property and the operational responsibilities of the participating partners lower level bilateral memoranda of understanding or. Mou's were signed that same day. By nasa administrator daniel goldin with his russian european and canadian counterparts and on february twenty fourth with japanese representatives.

Well i'll let you do this but you need to let me do this. And that all kind of came about as international cooperation so all of this was going on ball. Of course mir was still operational and an orbit and as mentioned in the mirror episode. us astronauts would actually visit the mir space station as part of preparations for creating the international space station. They're gathering valuable information about life in space. The effects of space on the human body and more these findings would inform design decisions for the future space station modules. In.

"Supposed to be a second mir. The soviet built dos eight in the nineteen eighties but for various reasons that program never got off the ground so to speak and the module sat in storage in the factory for many years and it would eventually emerge as as data at which means star in russian or possibly since the vfw sounds are a little tricky. I'll say zvezda. But because i tried to look it up but honestly the the resources i looked at. I'm i don't fully trust them. 'cause a lot of them just had that robot telling me it's vesta helps to me like it's just doing it. You know phonetically anyway. Over in the united states and europe and japan you had various space programs all at work on the design and development of modules for what was going to be space station freedom and then space station alpha or space station fred as some would call it and these included a module from the european space agency. That would be called. Columbus and one from japan called the japanese experiment module or j. m. or kibo but by the early nineteen nineties. All of those plans were starting to fizzle out. As the united states congress began to balk at the prospect of paying out for a space station that made little progress. Since the reagan administration had announced it in nineteen eighty-four that also put international strain on nasa. Because it had made commitments to these other space agencies so the collapse of the soviet union. Serious number both on its own space program as well as the united states program so for decades the rivalry between the united states and the. Ussr pushed governments to pour more resources into the space program. For numerous reasons. One was to display technological superiority over an opponent in the cold war another was to establish technologies that could potentially be weaponized in the future in a further escalation of the arms race and of course there were the countless engineers and scientists who genuinely wanted to expand our understanding of space and science but without that political rivalry a lot of the was gone at least on a political side. And you know. Don't get me started on that. I find that so frustrating. As if you know pushing back the boundaries of ignorance is somehow not priceless all by itself. You never know what you're gonna learn or how you might be able to use it and it could be an enormous benefit but no you know unless there's that other guy to race against it doesn't matter anyway by nineteen ninety three. There was a real possibility that any space station plans from anyone. Were just gonna get tossed aside at least but on the back burner for really long time. Russia was struggling with a financial and political crisis. The united states was struggling with the fact that the space station designs had moving goalposts and budgetary issues so every time nasa was trying to readjust new criticisms were coming in and various politicians. Were starting to pull away from nasa budgets. Also by that point bill clinton had become the president of the united states so with a change in presidential administration comes another opportunity to salvage the work on developing space station..

"Up on your host. Jonathan strickland. I'm an executive producer with iheartradio and above all things tech and. I think we're in the ultimate space station episode folks so for those of you just you know tuning into this episode of not hearing the others. This is a continuation of a series. I've done about space stations. So we started off talking about monolithic stations that is stations that would launch into orbit all in one piece like fully formed. And you would use some sort of heavy lift launch vehicle to get them up. You know the orbit that includes stuff like the soviet salvat stations which also included a couple of military platforms and also the us skylab station then in the following episode. We focused a lot on mir the soviet slash russian modular space station because that particular space station was up in orbit and Survived the transition from the soviet union dissolving and becoming. Its various you know independent states and then we followed that up with an episode about nasa's attempts to get its own modular space station up in orbit That last one was a real gut punch because it involves a series of different proposals and attempts. That you know fizzled out At least as far as nastase original plans go but this all sets the stage for the international space station or the iss. Which is what. I had intended to podcast about in the first place because depending upon whom you believe. That station is starting to near the end of its functional life. All right so let's do a quick look at what was going on as we arrived at a point where the iss becomes possible. I yet russia back. In the soviet days the soviet space agency built several space modules. That could serve as the core of a space station. Amir's core module is an example of this another example was the functional cargo block or f. gb now this type of module was originally intended for the mir space station but it never launched to join mir was also part of a soviet era antiballistic missile system. Kinda like the star wars program was supposed to be here in the united states and similarly that also never achieved orbit now some in the west suspected that the f. g. b. module that would eventually become the first iss component in space. Which would be called zarya that That means dawn or sunrise and russian. Anyway they thought that it's possible that this f gb unit actually dated to the soviet era or at least was largely constructed in the nineteen eighties however other documents. Show that while the design came from the soviet era the actual construction would take place in the nineties More on that in just a bit. But the russians also had another module with the designation of yet dose eight. Dos eight and you might remember from the previous episodes that the cell yet program included space stations. That had the dos designation. And that mirrors core macho had the designation. Dos seven while the dos. Eight was intended to serve as a core for successor space station. The mir to they're.

Still she says at the time her students at carnegie mellon university were very familiar with the milky way they knew about stars and constellations. That is not the case anymore forty years later. I have to explain what the milky way is and describe what it looks like in a show pictures and they think those pictures are fake. Because of light pollution major constellations can be totally invisible in cities. The pittsburgh city council is now trying to do something about it with the help of scientists like turn check. It passed a dark sky. Ordinance last week to reduce light pollution. This city is going to replace streetlights with warm tone. Led lights and they're also going to install shields so that late doesn't travel up what we're trying to do is cut out the light at the blue end of the spectrum because blue light scatters more easily than red light in the atmosphere rate. That's why the sky is blue. So blue light scatters everywhere. It doesn't stay where your lighting and to measure progress. She has some help in the higher ups in august. The astronauts on the international space station took some pictures of pittsburgh for on a clear night. And that's the before shot. The astronauts are gonna continue to take pictures of pittsburgh so we will have during pictures and after pictures. Terzic believes that as the sky's get darker more people will look up. In wonder that means more people more children will be able to see it and the benefits of being connected to half of our universe. I can't overstate that. It's a spiritual thing to feeling of connection with the universe she's hopeful it will peak young people's interest in the stars above and encourage them to pursue subjects such as

I think as the administration Their policy our policy congressional policy. I think we're all in agreement is we. We have to maintain a presence in lower orbit to even as we go further. The the trick is how do we do that efficiently. So we It makes me sad to say this but one day will have to retire. The isis and But we want to transition into something right. We want to transition to commercial platforms in low-earth-orbit where we're buying what we nasa need other countries can buy what they need. There's commercial activity or we're all in it together and That's what i picture for leo In the next twenty years it's hard to pick a timetable because development on commercial capabilities. Is you know it's hard to predict but We're trying to do all we can to enable that future and And keep got. Is this going. So we don't have a gap when the time comes to transition I really see and hope for commercial. Partnership both in leo and in our efforts beyond leo as well as our international partnership. Yeah that's great. thank you so much. I'm glad you brought up leo. Low earth orbit And that is a sad dot. You know the day we might have to say goodbye to the space station. But this conversation has just shown the ways that it's contributed to our future exploration and just some of those facets and of course the whole time the international space station has really been benefiting everyone on earth as well so before we wrap things up. I wanted to give everyone an opportunity if you have any thoughts or comments that you wanted to share before we ended up today. I don't really have any just appreciate the opportunity. I've loved doing The celebration of our twenty. Th anniversary in thinking about everything. Space station is brought us. It's been my whole career pretty much so it's near and dear to my heart. I intend to keep working on it and keep I really really want us to fulfill all the potential weekend out of this amazing platform and in all areas. So i think we're really doing that. And how excited to to share that with everybody who might be watching. I couldn't agree more Also liked what dr fogarty said about the diversity of crew i also on the ground all the the folks that support nasty you'll notice a huge insurgents of women in the technical fields. In fact this is an all female panel for example today I think that's really increased the the The the diversity of thinking you know. And and the way we're able to achieve achieve things like my. My boss is a as a woman. And you know robbins one of my bosses and anyway. I'm just very privileged to have some very strong ladies in the field. So it's a great thing. thank you. i agree with everything has been said. You know working for the space program. It is an amazing opportunity to be part of the president of the future It's also as a woman and coming up through stem fields and some mail. Donald feels zero. If i can be there to be an advocate And helped demonstrate what it looks like to do the role and do the job and be successful and and nobody even notices anymore. You know because you are seamlessly accepted as part of the as part of the team and you bring solutions and you bring value Incredibly proud of being part of the international space station at that has been present. My whole career started after two thousand. It was a remarkable to see it evolve And the way the the facility operates today and how we continue to use it as a test bed and i agree with with robin it will continue to be a workhorse for us from all kinds of learning opportunities sci tech and It only gets harder to go further away right and you want to have a lot of confidence and certainty by downside risk before you move to the next step. So i think it's really set up point an elegant way for us to move forward and inhabit testbed. Laura talked about. We can try to do things on the ground but it's still going to leave some open questions about will it work eight you've got to go into the operational Realm to really put it through its paces. But you don't wanna put humans at risk in the mission at risk for right becomes. The job is to go testings And not switch yet you know to the next people say well. Why aren't you doing the cutting edge. Cutting is risky and our rally. National word reliable. You don't know it's reliable. You need time. Some things are just about run time on it. So it's an invaluable resource that will continue to function in that capacity. I think engaging commercialization is an amazing opportunity and people who see value in it and be part of understanding what commercialization could mean But it's it's been a privileged to work in the arena And to be part of having colleagues just stellar We're not here for any other reason than to ten able the future so it's really privileged and i thank you for being on a panel was willing great to hear from my colleagues. Yes thank you. It was a par- To speak with all of you. And i i know it's just so exciting to reflect on the past twenty years and ultimately exciting to look forward to what's coming next for the international space station and as we journey further into the solar system.

"Regenerative life support systems at were Flying to the international space station today testing on the international space station. And that's where all that stuff will be an will practice again at the gateway with our full force full up system there so the international space station is truly a global collaboration. We talked about. We've had over two hundred forty people from nineteen countries And thousands of researchers who have contributed to the work. That's been done on station. So how has working with these other countries to keep the space station. Operational for twenty years with humans aboard in four our plan for working with international partners on the artemis missions. Well it says we can't do it alone right. We've relied on this partnership which is amazing To do what we've done on the international space station and still do I think even when our countries don't get along necessarily on earth very well we get along very well on in the international space station program And that's that's an incredible thing to say. And we're taking that partnership with us and building on it to do these missions beyond low-earth orbit together because we know that we need contributions from everybody know. Nobody can do this alone. It's too massive. It's too expensive and our international partners. Want to be with us on this journey. They really want to contribute in. They're excited about contributing. So we're extending what we learn on station now arguments and signing agreements and and really looking forward to everybody starting to work on their parts and i'm really looking forward to those milestones gray point. I totally agree. We cannot do it alone. We are best when we work together. so i would love to hear from each of you what you think human spaceflight will look like twenty years from. Now i'm gonna let jennifer start twenty years from now two decades. It seems so far away but in twenty years wasn't that was not yesterday I completely agree that it will continue to be an international collaboration. I definitely see a sustained lunar orbit and Lunar service presence that is going to be our next big. Learning opportunity to safely go to mars We are surprised every time it what the i don't know what i don't know it you know gets you and you really have to engage right. This is why everything we learned on earth in terms of exploration said to go and fail and hopefully fail safely in terms of you anticipated it And you learn from it We have lots of ways to recover from from the good type of failure rate. Now we we can put ourselves in a low risk posture to take those chances And i think the the lunar opportunities in the next two decades a really gonna put us in a position to do. Mars well I think the capability of the human functioning and performing in lunar orbit and lunar surface activities is only going to be improved You know you mentioned the suit. And there's a lot that has evolved about the suit with respect to how the human functions it is another vehicle but it's as close to you as your skin raid ended also We learned a lot about how it needs to to move with you and not against you. It shouldn't be more work you know. We're humans we use tools talbot and the suit essentially becomes an extension xhosa exoskeleton like The other ideas of being a good partner. Gombak to human system integration One of the things. That kinda get touched on. I mentioned as a countermeasure because i i really run a program. That's designed not to rely on something like pharmaceuticals and not because there's anything wrong. We're gonna have them to some extent but because the idea is when you metabolize a pharmaceutical earth food it goes into your urine your waist and then has to be processed. And when you're recycling water you have to pay attention to that full life cycle so we want to stick with things that are the least burden on the other systems and them no and anticipate what the expected to do The other element is that we're going to continue to increase the diversity of the people who go great the idea of who is capable and what they're capable of I think we continually make sure to remind people that there really are no limits. Our jobs are to help facilitate almost anybody to go it. It's about what skill you bring to the table. What uniqueness you bring to the table And we have only added value by adding to the diversity of the people who go their perspectives and their expertise. So i just see more women and increasing number of countries representatives from all kinds of countries being capable of fine with us and adding value to the missions of the future. I think that thanks opportunity for the question. 'cause it's good to step back and think the future like that. Instead of the next five years. Laura what do you when you see in twenty years. I am really hoping that we are on our way to mars in twenty years I'm hoping we've had a couple of missions by then And learned and learned all kinds of things Along the way. But but i agree. I think the the the moon is a good stepping stone in a an area to further away where it's still not so far that we can't learn those lessons and still relatively easily recover so So i guess that's my vision. That's probably as far as my career goes really hoping by. Then we've got. We've got people going.

"Yup next year. We're going to close that gap. And i'll just add onto a laura said that water recycling system enabled us really to go from a crew of three to the crew of six and now seven that we have on the international space station today because of that research that would cut that resupply on need in half. And i'm what does that mean that means more crew can do even more research and so that's just had a huge payoff. Yeah absolutely and more research means more benefits to humanity as well So we know there are considered five hazards spaceflight or looking at radiation isolation and confinement at the distance from earth gravity fields and hostile or closed environments. So what are some of the countermeasures in place to combat these five hazards. Yeah in hazards. We do breakdown on a on a on a Basis but i always remind folks. I mean that the human guinea experience those hazards much simultaneously. the international space station does have all present to a degree. And we're trying to understand the difference between say the plan for exploration versus. I assess to to know what space we still have to work on. And there are modifications being made i s with that in mind as well as the lunar right now. you know we use predominantly exercise Further microgravity altered gravity hazard right. We got a reload the body. In some way we gotta make it work hard and gone back to both Robbins points really. When you think about the human in this loop it's called human system integration like how is the human ineffective vehicle house vehicle factor human stick like nature of that so if we can load the skeleton we can make the bones and muscles work regularly and keep the body performance ready and healthy and there is a psychological component exercises wells physical. But then we're less of a burden on the urine. Recycling system can can we kind of meet her out. How the the calcium is lost There's also the nutritional side how do you feed a body And prepare for the waste produced when you feel body. That's exercising a lot. So we have to kind of understand all the inputs and outputs both the human and the vehicle system to come up with a solution that says it works for everyone you know and it's something that we think we can inform. How future vehicles should be built. What did we learn. From betting that human system integration.

"Were using. We'll talk a lot more about this panel or using the space station heavily to develop those capabilities so that's it that's mealy. Thanks so much. And next up at jennifer fogarty. High is a pleasure to be here in an honor to be on a panel I am the chief scientist for the nasa human research program. I have been with nasa sixteen years in total Spent my career working most of it in medical operations trying to understand the risks associated with spaceflight and making sure that the crew members are healthy and have the countermeasures. They need to be successful. It for mission requirements when i moved over to the human research program I became in charge of very large and diverse portfolio of research as trying to enable human spaceflight exploration and we use platforms such as international space station. Not only understand how the body changes over time and how humans respond us basically but then how do the tools that we introduce like exercise countermeasures or nutritional countermeasures. Help them opting mayes Their performance in health and sustainably be able to manage the stressors better gonna occur for exploration missions which we have not experienced yet. Thank you so much. Anti around out our panel. Today we have laura shaw low Said i'm laura sean i Work in the international space station program office at nasa johnson. Space center houston In my whole career working Support systems Thermal control of sport And so now we're establishing a testbed on board the international space station As robby mentioned detest out those technologies And so we'll talk about my role in that which is create this this test bed and all the hardware goes into it and i have been an about about twenty two years or so and work life support almost that entire time awesome. Thank you so much for joining us without further ado. Let's dive into some questions. The first one is for you robin. You've said before that the best is yet to come. And we're on the cusp of some huge payoffs from our investment in the international space station. So can you elaborate on that absolutely been talking a lot about this anniversary that we're celebrating. Twenty years of continuous human presence on the international space station. Which is just an amazing accomplishment. It self our team makes it look easy. but in fact it's not To sustain the international space station continuous crew as we look back on that that amazing accomplishment in the last two decades. We're really looking forward. We're looking forward to what the next decade holds for the international space station and in all of our mission areas. I feel like we've already accomplished so much. But the best really is yet to come so we'll be talking more. Today in the focus of this panel is on how are using it The space station for exploration. And we have all these capabilities That require the international space station as a testbed to close these gaps for future missions. Though we're going to be closing gaps Up we're also going to be doing more cutting edge. Research in medical fields manufacturing All kinds of for benefit to life here on earth stem activities. All of those the international partnership By itself is. I think you know as you mentioned we have all these countries participating up to one hundred. Eight countries have participated in some way in activities on the international space station. And we're filling in the map right of a global participation in this amazing platform we're also seeing more countries want to send astronauts into space and and then our final area commercialization so we're trying to enable commercial economy and low-earth-orbit. We're opening up the space station for private astronauts to come for the first time and commercial activities. We've got twenty one commercial facilities now on the international space station owned and operated by private industry or about to launch the anoraks airlock on space x twenty one adding yet another commercial capability. So that's why. I say i think the best is yet to come. We're about to really reap the benefits of In all of these mission areas from the international space station. That's really exciting. Thank you so much. The next question is really for any of you. Maybe even all three of you How are we currently using the space station to enable future exploration genuine. take verse. yeah it's it's been an exciting opportunity Several years ago when they completed station from a construction standpoint. But as you heard from robyn still going to continue to evolve and change as a testbed but we also were able to get enough crew up there where we can focus significantly on science and one of the components of science not the only but one of the components human research drilling characterize what happens with the human by over time Space lake has has some stressors associated with it but it also has some absence of stress that one of the big ones we try to understand is the body non experiencing gravity for significant periods of time And the the human body we've discovered is incredibly adaptable. But we're trying to understand. Where does that adaptation take you for periods of time. That are longer longer than what we experienced on stations though you use something like station. And the powers of the national lab that are there was the up and down mass the capability to bring samples down. Send harbor up and bring samples down. The do you tailor studies over its all-time course. Because what's important about looking at change over. Time is your ability then to predict burp. Huger time periods. That haven't occurred yet and build that confidence that you know where this system is going. So i think this station has just been remarkable with allowing us to look at multiple crew members. At a time men and women people of different ethnicities to really get a a comprehensive sense of what people of the future might be looking at. And how would we help them survive and not just survived but really perform to the mission standards that we expect for something like a three years. Mar mars mission though is one of our many analogues. But it's our our most high fidelity analogue because it is based operation. All right coming up next. We actually have a question. I think this might be for you. What have we learned from human research on the space station that is preparing us for the missions to the moon and mars refer the missions a feature coming up in the near term for especially for the moon. I think it was allowing us really to position ourselves to learn how to do. Human subject research in a very constrained environment There's also risks associated with doing research so we're always balancing enabling the mission to occur in doing research on subjects But we have to remember that it is field research so when people are going to go into space and go to a planetary surface understanding how they perform on something like a particular activity is part of what we have to understand when they don't even further away so i think as a learning opportunity for the scientists in just executing the science on those missions as much. It is the data. That's gonna come back. The data really is invaluable One of the questions we have about microgravity which is primarily. The situation on the international space station is the body I call it like one of the most energy efficient manner known to man in terms of it will stop investing in systems that you don't regularly us so i think it's probably pretty well known about spaceflight is you do lose some bone and muscle.
