Mission OverviewObjective: Test and record the effects of a near space environment on several cultures ofStreptococcus mutans.Purpose: Determine how bacteria cultures respond to the lack of pressure, extreme temperatures, and radiation present in near-space.Why: Test the validity the of the recorded results of the 1967 flight of Surveyor III. According to NASAs results, we believe that we will find that bacteria not only survive, but actually thrive, in the harsh environment of space.
DesignWe will accomplish our mission by creating a balloon satellite in which our samples will be exposed to differing conditions.Three sets of samples will be put in their own conditions.Number 1 will be in a lower section of the sat with the electronics and will have a heater warming itNumber 2 will be in the upper half of the sat isolated from light but not temperatureNumber 3 will be in the upper half of the sat exposed to light and temperature
The following slides will illustrate the method of doing this.
