    Within IMPULSE, three different ESA accepted flight experiments will further evaluate the impact of the following stress challenges: microgravity, cosmic radiation and psychological stress. IMMUNO-2 will perform a follow-up study of astronauts' health that stay for longer periods on the ISS. MoCISS includes an in vitro study onboard the ISS that will monitor the cellular immunity of astronauts ex vivo by use of the in vitro delayed type hypersensitivity (DTH) assay. Within SPHEROIDS, in vitro experiments on the ISS will further investigate the impact of microgravity on human endothelial cells.
