Artemis Generation: Langston and NASA sign International Space Station payload agreement

Body
At 11:06 a.m. on Thursday Feb. 13, Langston University and NASA signed an International Space Station payload agreement. Langston University has partnered with Johnson Space Center to develop natural countermeasures—through extracts from plants—that will help to restore astronauts’ immune systems in space flight conditions. Immune system dysregulation has been found to reactivate multiple latent viruses, such as chickenpox, in astronauts during space shuttle missions. The researchers at Langston University have found a way to naturally treat this through the use of medicinal phytochemicals found in plant extracts that will enhance the immune system during space flight missions and reverse the effects of microgravity on the human immune system. These medicinal plant extracts may play an important role in restoring immune function in astronauts on NASA’s planned missions to the moon and ultimately to Mars. The target date to launch the payload on the International Space Station is August 2020.
