    When the Space X Crew 5 rocket launched into space in October 2022, it took with it samples of bacteria encapsulated in gel microdroplets. Why? It’s all to better prepare humans to stay healthy during space travel.

    This is the second experiment in a study to learn how the human gut’s microbiome changes while astronauts are in space.

    On Feb. 13, join LANL biologist Armand Dichosa in a fascinating Periodic Table to hear more about the experiments and what their results could mean for humankind’s future space endeavors.
