Space Life & Physical Sciences Research & Applications Division Task Book

The Space Life & Physical Sciences Research & Applications Division Task Book is an online database of research projects supported by the Space Biology, Physical Sciences, and Human Research Program research areas within the Space Life & Physical Sciences Research & Applications (SLPSRA) Division of NASA's Human Exploration and Operations (HEO) Mission Directorate. Research projects within the Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) are also covered, beginning with FY2017 projects. Research projects within the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI), all completed by May 2017, are also included. Information includes project descriptions, annual research results, research impacts, and a listing of publications resulting from this NASA-funded research.

Image A team of university investigators is working with the Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) program at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) to better understand the mysterious nature of quantum mechanics ofinteracting atoms. The project will take advantage of the extraordinarily realized in the CAL apparatus op...

Image Interfacial Instability: The shape is caused by normal-field instability. This is the condition where these small 10nm droplets of ferrofluids are described by Maxwell's equations where the divergence of the B field is zero and the curl of H is zero. The imposed magnetic field leads to a stress cond...
