Blood samples for a ROALD (ROle of Apoptosis in Lymphocyte Depression) experiment before being sent to the International Space Station.
The ROALD experiments are looking at why certain human cells replicate less in space.
The findings are being shared with the scientific community, especially researchers studying people with reduced immune response. The chances are that elderly people could benefit from this field of investigation.
