Abstract:
The goal of the HADES 2013 mission is to design and construct a payload that samples microbial aerosols from the float altitude of 36-­-38 km. These samples shall be returned uncontaminated to the clean room facilities at LSU for analysis. Analysis of the samples will determine the total number of cells collected, and efforts will be made to culture, isolate, and characterize microorganisms from the samples. The payload will also characterize the environment microorganisms may encounter in the stratosphere including temperature, pressure, and humidity. Noelle Bryan leads the team under the guidance of Dr. B. Christner, P.I. The team members include M. Alleman and S. Burke.
