What if a murder takes place in Space?

Solving Crime in Space

I have always wondered, how can we solve any case that is about crime commited in space! Turns out, even in the vast expanse of the cosmos, where stars twinkle and and planets revolve, there’s still room for lawbreaking.

But the good news is that the scientists are already on the case, or should I say, on the space case?

Bloodstains in Zero-G

Firstly we need to know how blood behaves in microgravity !

Some brilliant minds at Staffordshire University and the University of Hull decided it was high time to figure out how to solve space crimes.

The crime scenes in outer space would definitely look like something from out of the world (literally).

It is supposed to look like the astronauts are floating around with mysterious bloodstains on the space station walls.Sounds like the plot of a perfect thriller, isn’t it?

The Great Space Experiment: Blood, Guts, and Glycerin

In order to figure out the mysteries of space forensics, these intrepid researchers concocted a truly out-of-this-world experiment.

They hopped aboard a modified Boeing 727, armed with a concoction of glycerin and red floor coloring. Because definitely they won’t use real blood !

Then, they released droplets of this makeshift blood during moments of reduced gravity.

The Astro Forensics : CSI- Space Edition

So, what did they find out? it turns out blood behaves differently in space! Obviously with no gravity to hold them back. Blood droplets stick to surfaces like glue, forming weird shapes and sizes that even CSI agents back on Earth can only dream of.

That’s probably going to look like a crime scene that unfolds in slow motion, but with more spacesuits.

Now, I know you’re dying to ask, “But Oishee, why do we even need space forensics?” Well, imagine a future where humans roam around from one planet to another .

With space tourism on the rise and moon bases becoming the new Airbnb hotspots, it’s just a matter of time before space crime becomes as common as a cold on Earth.

So, let’s thank our lucky stars that someone’s out there, boldly going where no CSI has gone before, to keep us safe from space villains and rogue astronauts alike.
