There have been hundreds of science experiments and technology research projects onboard the International Space Station since the first modules of that station were launched 15 years ago. The research has covered things like human life sciences, in order to find out how being in that environment impacts people, and to find out ways to mitigate the negative effects of that, as well as research in biology and physical sciences, and astronomical sciences and technology development, and research to support future human exploration beyond low earth orbit. And much of this has been done with an eye toward how what we've learned in space can be applied to help people here on earth. For a recent international conference, the International Space Station Chief Scientist, Dr. Julie Robinson, was asked to put together a list of the top 10 research results from the space station, and she joins Pat Ryan of NASA Public Affairs to talk about some of those.

NASA has been observing the 15th Anniversary of the launch of the first few modules of the International Space Station back in November of 1998. In this coming February, we'll mark the 13th Anniversary of the arrival of the U.S. Laboratory Destiny to the International Space Station on a space shuttle mission during Expedition One. Science research has been going on on board the space station throughout the assembly process, but now that the assembly is essentially complete the science activity both inside and outside the space station is taking the primary focus of the activity on orbit. A few months ago, the International Astronautical Federation asked International Space Station Chief Scientist, Julie Robinson, to share the top 10 research results from the station at the International Astronautical Congress in Beijing, and she joins Pat Ryan of NASA Public Affairs to talk about some of those.

NASA Public Affairs Officer Dan Huot speaks with Assistant ISS Program Scientist Kirt Costello about the various science experiments and research currently being conducted aboard the International Space Station. The International Space Station is an unprecedented achievement in global human endeavors to conceive, plan, build, operate and utilize a research platform in space. Costello and his team advise the ISS Program Manager on the science that is being selected and flown to the station and work to prioritize the experiments that are being conducted. Results from the science and research conducted aboard the station provide advantages to many areas of our lives here on Earth -- health and telemedicine, pharmaceuticals, physical science, engineering safety, better consumer goods, and Earth science and observation. To learn more about space station science and research visit: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/index.html Watch the full Space Station Live broadcast weekdays on NASA TV at 10 a.m. CDT.

  • About This Video
This is part 2 of 2 of a video that describes the remote sensing capabilities of the International Space Station (ISS) utilizing the United States Laboratory "Destiny" module science window and the Window Observational Research Facility (WORF). The Lab Window is the highest optical quality window ever installed on a manned space vehicle and permits the use of high resolution cameras and multi and hyper-spectral Earth science remote sensing instruments from within the pressurized volume of the ISS which eliminates the expense and complexity of having to operate an instrument outside of the ISS in the vacuum of space at extreme temperatures. The WORF provides the stable platform on which to mount cameras and sensors at the Lab Window as well as the connectivity to operate these payloads. The video is hosted by Astronaut and Lab Window/WORF developer Mario Runco who flew three Space Shuttle missions, STS-44, 54, & 77.

NASA Commentator Brandi Dean speaks with Dr. Scott M. Smith of the Biomedical Research and Environmental Sciences Division at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston about his nutritional experiments Biochemical Profile and Pro K which are being conducted with crew members on the International Space Station. Smith is investigating the different ways in which a body on a long mission in space needs and uses nutrients as compared to one on Earth, with an eye toward ensuring the health of the explorers who will make deep space flights beyond Earth orbit in the years to come.
