Week 5 Bacteria and fungi
Welcome to the second half of the course. First, watch Video 1 which introduces what is covered this week.
This week you will look at bacteria and fungi, and your results from your bread mold experiment which you started in Week 2 will also be discussed.
By the end of this week, you should be able to:
- understand the key differences between bacteria and fungi
- explain the types of scientific research that can benefit from microgravity environments, focusing on bacterial resistance
- calculate gravitational acceleration on different planets from data obtained by a random positioning machine (RPM)
- reflect on a home-based practical experiment and compare results.
