Task Book: Biological & Physical Sciences Division and Human Research Program

Task Book: Biological & Physical Sciences Division and Human Research Program is an online database of research projects supported by the Space Biology and Physical Sciences research areas within the Biological & Physical Sciences (BPS) Division of NASA's Science Mission Directorate, and the Human Research Program in NASA's Human Exploration and Operations (HEO) Mission Directorate. Research projects within the Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) are included, beginning with FY2017 projects. The database also includes research projects of the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI), all completed by May 2017.

Database information includes project descriptions, annual or final research results, Earth benefits and research impacts, and listings of publications resulting from the NASA-funded research.

Formerly the Space Life & Physical Sciences Research & Applications (SLPSRA) Division Task Book, the Space Biology and Physical Sciences programs transferred to the Science Mission Directorate in July 2020.

Image The calcium measurement system uses a capillary tube coated with a reagent mix including calcein. The calcein reacts with calcium to produce a fluorescent complex. The inset in the upper right hand corner shows the capillary tube coated with reagent. The inset in the upper left shows the fluorescent...
Image The figure depicts a conversation between two participants (crew and Mission Control Center (MCC)) using Braiding, a novel communication tool that structures dialogue into constituent topics (‘braids’). Remote members pre-assign topics for their conversation to braids that are represented as panels ...
