New Content Item (1) © NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins. Image credit: NASAIn this special series in Microbiome and Environmental Microbiome, we highlight articles that explore the microbiome of aeronautics and space studies conducted by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Biotechnology and Planetary Protection Group. Characterizing aeronautics-associated microbiomes and microgravity compatible technologies for exploring the microbiomes of spacecraft, spacesuits and astronauts provides insights on the utilization of novel technologies and microbiota driving factors. 

The articles in this collection are also included in our Aeronautics and space microbiomes series.
