Forum highlights future of research aboard the International Space Station
Date:5/22/2014

To highlight the direction for life and physical sciences aboard the International Space Station, a panel of experts gathered May 21 for the Destination Station: International Space Station Science Forum. This forum, the first in a new series of public discussions dedicated to research aboard the station, emphasized current and future microgravity research that will prepare astronauts for long-duration missions farther into the solar system than ever before and provide lasting benefits to life on Earth.

Not only does the space station provide a one-of-a-kind orbiting laboratory for researching many science disciplines in microgravity, but it also serves as a technology development testbed for deep space exploration and is a destination to grow a robust commercial market in low-Earth orbit. While the use of the space station continues to grow, science studied aboard is underway at an unprecedented pace. In addition to continued scientific opportunity, there also are key areas in which to focus on the most crucial research needs in space.

In 2011, the National Research Council published a report on how best to use the space station. This report, entitled "Recapturing a Future for Space Exploration: Life and Physical Sciences Research for a New Era," established priorities and provided recommendations for life and physical sciences research in microgravity for the 2010-2020 decade.

"We took a broad look at what research needed to be done in the physical sciences and the life sciences to underpin the future of space exploration," said Elizabeth Cantwell, director for mission development in the engineering directorate at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California, and co-chair of the National Research Council's decadal study. "We recommended that because animal studies underpin so much of our knowledge and understanding of human health terrestrially, that animal studies be supported more strongly in the space station s
