Swedish Experiment to International Space Station

Published måndag 3 oktober 2005 kl 11.23

Swedish researchers plan to measure how astronauts on the International Space Station are affected by inhaling increased levels of dust in a gravity-free environment.

Expedition 12, which took off from Kazakhstan Saturday, brought with them a Swedish-made instrument to measure the effect dust levels have on astronauts’ lung capacities. The Stockholm-based medical technology company Aerocrine, which developed the instrument, says on the Russian space station Mir there was a tendency for a slightly weakened lung capacity.

The researchers hope the project may help asthma patients on Earth.
