News has come out that researchers took to the ‘Vomit Comet’, a Boeing 727 used to film movies, train astronauts, and more, to break into a new world. The goal was studying “unique challenges of bloodstain pattern analysis aboard a spacecraft.” So, let’s think CSI:ISS, International Space Station. Experiments were done in microgravity using a mixture to simulate blood, which revealed that blood behaves differently in space – sticking more to surfaces and forming in unusual shapes and sizes. This study, involving experts from Staffordshire University and the University of Hull along with a real CSI investigator, aims to prepare for potential future crimes or accidents in space by adapting forensic techniques for microgravity environments. I’m praying it’s a long time before they have to use these techniques.
