The hazards associated with long-term exposure to the space environment, such as radiation damage and the loss of bone mass, are not sufficiently understood to determine whether they pose acceptable risks or not. Research focused on these hazards is critical to sustained human presence outside the protective environment of the Earth ’s atmosphere and magnetosphere. This program uses the Space Life Sciences Laboratory (SLS Lab) at Kennedy Space Center (KSC); as well as labs at Florida Tech.Lunar dust physics: Enabling technologies must be developed, including systems to mitigate the damaging effects of dust contamination; technologies that use the local planetary resources to produce consumables such as oxygen, water and rocket propellant; food production systems; innovative range technologies and many more. We are currently studying the induction charging characteristics of lunar dust.Bone Loss: The objectives of the bone project are (1) to provide a dynamic model of the structure and function of bone in response to loading with sufficient precision to predict the effect of any arbitrary loading history and (2) to develop and refine new countermeasures against bone loss.Radiation damage: Solar and galactic radiation is a major hazard to space crews during long-duration flights and planetary bases beyond the Earth ’s magnetic field. Intense solar flares can induce acute radiation sickness, galactic cosmic rays can kill brain cells that the body cannot replace, and all forms of radiation can induce cancer. The only known safety measure is shielding to prevent the high-speed particles from reaching the crew.Dr. Durrance is has an interdisciplinary research and education program in astrobiology addressing three fundamental questions: How does life begin and evolve? Does life exist elsewhere in the Universe? What is the future of life on Earth and beyond? Research addressing these questions is highly interdisciplinary involving fields such as physics, biology, chemistry, geology, and planetary science.Extrasolar Planets: Most of the newly discovered planets have been found using indirect techniques, where the planet ’s effect on light emitted from the parent star is detected, not the light emitted by the planet itself. The most likely technique for detecting life on these planets is a detailed analysis of their spectra; therefore, we are developing a system that may be able to detect IR emissions from exoplanets using large, ground-based telescopes along with Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) techniques developed for radio astronomy.Amyloid Fiber Formation: We are pursuing research that may shed light on a fundamental question regarding the origin of life: how did the transition from non-living to living matter occur?

As we venture back into space exploration, the idea of recycling has significant obstacles to overcome. We know that launching equipment and supplies into low Earth and geostationary orbit comes with a hefty price tag, and adding recycling equipment to the mix only adds to the expense. Furthermore, recycling materials in the microgravity environment entails unique technical challenges and risks. Despite these hurdles, the motivation is there. The European Space Agency, for example, has recognised the potential of recycling technologies in space and is exploring circular economies beyond Earth’s atmosphere. The main focus is in-orbit servicing technologies, geared initially towards smaller-scale objects, which would pave the way for repairing, upgrading and refuelling satellites in orbit, while also addressing the growing concern of space-debris removal. Northrop Grumman’s Mission Extension Vehicle (MEV) programme, for instance, involves spacecrafts designed to rendezvous with and dock to a commercial geosynchronous satellite to provide life-extension services. MEV-1 successfully docked with the 20-year-old satellite Intelsat 901 in 2020, while MEV-2 docked with Intelsat 1002 in 2021.

For animals, rising temperatures act like inflation. Rising prices mean housing and food take up more of our budget, leaving less money for luxuries. More heat means more of an animal's bodily resources, like food and oxygen, are needed to fuel basic functions, like breathing and moving, leaving less energy for growth and reproduction.phys.org, 6d ago
Most people now live in cities and the world’s urban population is projected to increase by another 2.5 billion people by 2050. Yet about one in three urban dwellers globally – over 1 billion people – do not have reliable, safe or affordable access to basic everyday services and infrastructure like decent housing, running water and sanitation, electricity, or transport to access work, school and healthcare. Meanwhile, climate impacts escalate every day, and research tells us we need transformative change to urban systems to keep global warming below the most dangerous levels. Access to housing integrated with other services in cities is a critical pathway to meeting climate and development goals that is rarely discussed in international climate forums.World Resources Institute, 6d ago

Conflict has a deep and interrelated impact on health, food, and water security. With agriculture heavily dependent on freshwater withdrawals, disruptions to water supplies can heavily affect food production, which in turn affects health. In fragile and conflict-affected settings, poor governance and climate change exacerbate these challenges, leading to heightened competition for resources and the weaponization of vital assets like water. Projects in such locations, if not aware of conflict dynamics, can inadvertently exacerbate grievances and undermine their contributions to peace and stability – two key factors needed for long-term success in climate adaptation. Hence, incorporating conflict-sensitivity is vital for effective programming in these settings.CGIAR, 10d ago
I finally get it. We are fighting to dismantle structures designed to remove Indigenous Peoples from their land so that our economic system can continue to extract and consume resources at an ever-increasing pace. This growth-based system, designed to generate wealth and profits for individuals, is threatening the survival of all life on this planet. Climate change, I have realized, is only one symptom of the real threat, which is ecological overshoot. Ecological overshoot occurs when our demands on the planet are greater than what Earth’s ecosystems can renew. Extraction and the pollution it causes are now pushing us past several planetary boundaries, including carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere. In short, extraction is devastating the life-support systems of our planet.resilience, 11d ago
