NASA Spaceline Current Awareness List #693 8 April 2016

Status Report From: Spaceline
Posted: Friday, April 8, 2016

Editor's note: NASA's various life sciences programs have prepared the SPACELINE Current Awareness updates since 1999 covering all aspects of space life science, gravitational biology, space medicine, and human factors. NASA does not maintain a website - nor does it have an archive of this resource online. However, SpaceRef does have a complete archive of SPACELINE updates all the way back to 1999 that can be accessed here: http://www.spaceref.com/news/mission.html?mid=188&page=1
