Headline Details: E. coli AntiMicrobial Satellite (EcAMSat), has scientific leadership from the Stanford University School of Medicine and mission operations by Santa Clara University. It will have a "6U” cubesat configuration, and will weigh about 30 pounds. The primary scientific purpose is to investigate how and whether space microgravity affects the antibiotic resistance of E. coli, a bacterial pathogen responsible for urinary tract infection in humans and animals. Bacterial antibiotic resistance may pose a danger to astronauts in microgravity.
