International Space Station may be more polluted than most American homes

  • A study analyzing dust collected from the International Space Station (ISS) found higher levels of potentially harmful chemical contaminants compared to dust found in homes in the US and Western Europe.
  • The contaminants in ISS dust included flame retardants, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls, and perfluoroalkyl substances, which are known to pose risks to human health.
  • The researchers suggest that careful material choices in spacecraft design and construction could help reduce the presence of these contaminants in future space stations and habitats.
