The attitude motion of a small satellite with deployable side panels designed for passive aerodynamic stabilization in a rarefied atmosphere is considered. The influence of the aerodynamic and gravitational torques on the motion near the unstable and stable equilibrium positions is studied. The presence of the unstable equilibrium position and flexible elements is the cause of chaos. The equations of planar motion of the satellite with deployed flexible panels are obtained. A relationship…

“Modeled Microgravity” Affects Cell Response to Ionizing Radiation and Increases Genomic Damage
Results indicate that modeling microgravity incubation after irradiation affects cell response to ionizing radiation, reducing the level of radiation-induced apoptosis and, as a consequence, modeled microgravity increases the frequency of damaged cells that survive after irradiated cells.
