During her six month mission, Kate Rubins spent hundreds of hours working on space station experiments, talking with the researchers behind the studies, and serving as an ambassador for science in downlinks with the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control, and others. She built on experiments conducted during her first mission in 2016, working on new heart research and DNA sequencing.
