Abstract

For deep space exploration to become a reality, critical risks to astronaut health and performance must be resolved. One key challenge is the control of microbial contamination. As part of a joint EU-Russia research effort, VTT participated in the development of an advanced model to predict airborne microbial contamination. Effective countermeasures require a clear understanding of microbial sources, transport in spacecraft air and surface deposition. This can be achieved by reliable models simulating bioaerosol dynamics.
