The 80th cargo objective from Roscosmos is due to launch tonight at 11:25 p.m. EST and automatically dock to the Poisk module on Thursday at 2:06 a.m. survive on NASA TV and the companys site and the NASA app.
The Northrop Grumman Cygnus area freighter will show up at a point about 10 meters from the space station when the Canadarm2 robotic arm, commanded by NASA Flight Engineer Raja Chari, will capture the lorry at 4:35 a.m. next Monday. Chari and his back up NASA Flight Engineer Kayla Barron are training today on a computer for the upcoming robotics activities.
While 2 rockets are getting all set to blast off to the orbiting lab today, the space lab residents remained busy today with area science and station maintenance activities.
NASA Flight Engineer Mark Vande Hei continued establishing the Combustion Integrated Rack for the upcoming SoFIE, or Solid Fuel Ignition and Extinction, series of fire safety research studies. Astronaut Matthias Maurer of ESA (European Space Agency) took part in a vision test then wore a specialized body fit that promotes muscles for the EasyMotion exercise study. NASA astronaut Thomas Marshburn began the day on computer upkeep before spending the afternoon in the Tranquility module working on the U.S. treadmill.
Commander Anton Shkaplerov of Roscosmos activated the EarthKAM experiment in the Harmony module for a weeklong session of Earth photography remotely-controlled by students on the ground. Flight Engineer Pyotr Dubrov continued establishing the Nauka multipurpose laboratory module for operations.
