Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Getting spacecraft ready for launch may have more to do with medical research than you think.

Those techniques were designed for planetary protection — ensuring that NASA spacecraft do not contaminate other worlds.
