Cosmology,Astronomy, SETI, and Space Science

Researchers are investigating the origins of the universe and looking at it using a variety of modes besides visible light.  They are trying to understand the nature of exstraterrestial environments, microgravity and the effects on human biology.  They are exploring the possibilities of intelligence in places other than earth.
