Biological Research in Canisters-25 (BRIC-25)

Science Objectives

Biological Research in Canisters-25 (BRIC-25) studies the effect of low Earth orbit on the physiology, cell-to-cell communication, and virulence of the bacterial pathogen Staphylococcus aureus. Results could support more refined predictions about the risk that S. aureus poses to astronauts during flight and help protect their health on future missions.

Status Investigation will launch to the International Space Station (ISS) on the NG-20 Commercial Resupply Service mission in January, 2024.
