AniaraMicrobes at high altitude and the quest of microbes in space
Tokyo University of Pharmacy and Life Science
We have collected microbes at high altitude by using airplanes and balloons (up to 30 km). To address whether microbes exist and can survive at higher altitude (and/or space), we proposed microbe capture and microbe exposure experiments at ISS as a part of TANPOPO mission. Characteristics of microbes we captured at high altitude and the outline of TANPOPO mission will be discussed.
