Developing deep space CubeSat technologies and radiation biosensor to gauge DNA damage and repair beyond LEO.

Description

Radiation Biosensor to Gauge DNA Damage and Repair Beyond Low Earth Orbit. • Develop a deep space nanosat capability • Develop a radiation biosensor useful for other missions • Define & validate SLS secondary payload interfaces and accommodations for a biological payload * Linear Energy Transfer (LET) Spectrometer * Total Ionizing Dose (TID) Dosimeter
* Quantify DNA damage from space radiation environment. Correlate biologic response with – Linear Energy Transfer (LET) and Total Ionizing Dose (TID) data. Yeast assay uses microfluidic arrays to monitor for DSBs.
