Space Station Live: Fungal Response to Microgravity

You wouldn't think things such as diaper rash or thrush could be studied aboard the International Space Station, but an investigation is looking at a type of microorganism, common to us here on Earth, to see how it reacts to the effects of microgravity. Public Affairs Officer Lori Meggs at the Payload Operations Integration Center at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., talks with Sheila Neilsen-Preiss, principal investigator for the Micro-6 study of Candida albicans in microgravity.
