In the long term, it is aimed to modify plants by breeding or genetic engineering in a way that they can germinate, grow and reproduce under space conditions as optimal as possible, because they play an important role for the nutrition and the psychological well-being of humans and in the frame of bioregenerative life support systems.more...

Die Experimente sollen mit Daphnia magna durchgeführt werden. Im Highspeedbereich werden die Tiere aus zwei Richtungen mit ca. 1000 f/s gefilmt. Dadurch können die Bewegungen im dreidimensionalen Raum exakt verfolgt werden.more...

The alga Euglena gracilis and the moss Physcomitrella patens are both highly sensitive in the perception of gravity (g). The stationary moss Physcomitrella patens shows a negative gravitropism of the protonemata while the mobile Euglena gracilis displays a negative gravitaxis and additionally phototaxis to reach optimal growth conditions in the water column.more...

These experiment campaigns, carried out by the Institut für Zoologie of the university of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, investigate the behaviour of fish under microgravity conditions.more...

Das Projekt der Universität Hohenheim beschäftigt sich mit der neuronalen Signalverarbeitung der Schwerkraftwahrnehmung zwischen Innenohr und Zentralnervensystem von Fischen.more...

Die Philipps-Universität Marburg und die Universität Konstanz untersuchen schnelle gravitrope Primärreaktionen von Pilzen und höheren Pflanzen bei verschiedenen Beschleunigungsreizen.more...

The aim of the study is to investigate the effects of micro and hyper gravity on the activity of artificial and native ion channels as well in artificial lipid membranes as in living cells.more...

The University of Bonn were able to detect for the first time extreme early signals in roots of Zea mays which are triggered by microgravity.more...
