In 2016, NASA astronaut Kate Rubins flew on Expedition 48/49 and became the first person to sequence DNA in space. She eventually sequenced over 2 billion base pairs of DNA during a series of experiments to analyze sequencing in microgravity. Join us as she discusses her experiences as an astronaut, including her 115 days in space and 12 hours and 46 minutes of spacewalk time. 

This program is made possible through the generous support of Boeing.
