You’ve seen NASA send spacecraft to the Moon, Mars, and around many other planets in our solar system, and beyond. But did you ever wonder how these spacecraft are powered? They have to last for many, many years and let’s face it, there isn’t a charging station in space? Well, our guest today knows all about powering spacecraft! Carl Sandifer, manager of the Radioisotope Power Systems Program at NASA Glenn Research Center explains everything. After all, without power, spacecraft can’t do anything.

Why Would You Send Yeast into Space?
32:28 |Episode: 134 | December 6th, 2022

Yeast is something you probably eat every day (it’s in bread!) but would you ever think about sending it into space? That’s exactly what Dr. Sergio Santa Maria, the lead scientist for NASA Ames BioSentinel program is doing. BioSentinel is NASA’s first biological mission beyond the Earth-Moon system. Their experiment with yeast was launched on the Artemis1 rocket and is now (and forever) flying through space. The goal is to learn how yeast is affected by deep space radiation in hopes of learning how that same radiation might affects humans. Sounds like a cool experiment, doesn’t it? It is! Take a listen.
