Fundamental Biology Program for Shuttle/MIR
The international cooperation that has been initiated in the Shuttle/Mir program offers tremendous opportunities. The two Fundamental Biology experiments, "Incubator" and "Greenhouse", that are currently part of the Joint Shuttle/Mir program are exce llent examples of the cooperative effort. The purpose of the "Incubator Experiment " is to determine the effect of micro-gravity environment on the fundamental developmental biology of avians. The primary objective of the "Greenhouse Experiment" is to conduct seed-to-seed experiments in space and determine the effect of the microgravity environment on productivity and sexual reproductive capability of crop plants. This resource contains an overview of NASA's Fundamental Biology Program and its experiments.
