UofL researchers take flight, study way to rehydrate blood in space

UofL researchers take flight, study way to rehydrate blood in space

A journey into space is inherently risky, so UofL researchers have been tapped by NASA to see if they can rehydrate blood in case of emergency on a space flight. The UofL faculty have already discovered a way to, essentially, freeze dry then rehydrate blood on land. Their NASA-sponsored research is intended to find out if that dried blood can be rehydrated in a zero gravity environment, meaning astronauts embarking on years-long trips can receive emergency blood transfusions.
