The “Technologies for Biological Space Exploration (T4BSE)” study will define technologies to enable cross-species comparative biological research, including the use and integration of genomic, proteomic, and metabolic data with measurement of multigenerational and developmental biological and physiological processes in whole organisms. The goal of this study is to investigate the element of biological and biological-based technologies necessary to enable, support, facilitate, and enhance missions involving life beyond.
The following mission concerns will be addressed:
Scientists and engineers from various academic, commercial, and government entities make up the T4BSE multidisciplinary team. The team will develop possible science concepts and the corresponding technology requirements for potential mission targets which include but not limited to: ISS Baseline missions, L2 Orion, Lunar Orbiter, Lunar Lander/Rover, and as a hosted payload. The deliverables expected from the T4BSE study will be a white paper and multiple presentations at various conferences.
