The first Turkish astronaut, Alper Gezeravcı, continued his work on the International Space Station (ISS) with his 6th experiment.
Today Gezeravcı implemented the “OXYGEN SATURATION” experiment, with Oğuzhan Aydemir from Nişantaşı University as the project leader.
The aim of the experiment in question is to identify the differences and inconveniences caused by low gravity by using artificial intelligence to calculate the oxygen content of the air.
5 test runs started so far
Gezeravcı has conducted five experiments since arriving on the ISS.
Astronaut Gezeravcı, “EXTREMOPHYTE”, who studies the physiological and molecular responses of the endemic halophyte plant called Schrenkiella Parvula, which grows in Lake Tuz, to the space environment, aims to develop new plants to provide the nutrients that a large number needed by humans Who will live in space in the future is intended to support environmental controls in closed living environments and is continuing its first step: “CRISPR-GEM” and “Expert” experiments that investigate whether microalgae species can be used in life support systems in space.
Gezeravcı is working on “ALGALSPACE”, which will study the use of algae in the space environment in oxygen regeneration from carbon dioxide, nutritional supplementation, water improvement and life support areas and will enable the detection of vital responses to life in space through changes starting from the “vocal cord” and the Identification of disturbances caused by low gravity with sound frequencies. “VOKALKORD” also continues its experiments.
