Space Life and Physical Sciences Research and Applications Northrop Grumman CRS-13 Experiments and Payloads

Space Life and Physical Sciences Research and Applications (SLPSRA) enables human spaceflight exploration to expand the frontiers of knowledge, capability, and opportunity in space and pioneers scientific discovery in and beyond low-Earth orbit to drive advances in science, technology, and space exploration to enhance knowledge, education, innovation, and economic vitality.

Dr. Anna-Lisa Paul and Dr. Robert Ferl, UF/IFAS department of horticultural sciences researchers, are collaborating with space biology experiments on the International Space Station with the Spectrum Multi-Spectral Fluorescence Imager that will help meet the requirement by exploring the effects of microgravity on plants and micro-organisms. This research will lead to more robust and healthier food sources, both in space and on Earth.
