Advanced Physics and Human Research as Space Station Crew Readies for Pair of Spacewalks

At the beginning of the day, Chari assisted Marshburn and Maurer as they gathered their saliva, urine, and blood samples. The samples were stowed in a science freezer for later analysis as part of the long-running Repository investigation. That study takes a look at a bank of biological specimens collected from station astronauts for many years for insights into the physiological changes happening in people living in space.
NASA Flight Engineer Mark Vande Hei worked throughout the day inside the Kibo laboratory module on payload hardware that will quickly be put outside the station in the severe environment of area. He will pass NASA astronaut Christina Kochs mark of 328 days on March 3, then he will break NASA astronaut Scott Kellys record of 340 days on March 15.

Barron likewise signed up with fellow flight engineers Raja Chari and Thomas Marshburn from NASA and Matthias Maurer from ESA (European Space Agency) to prepare for two upcoming spacewalks to continue customizing the orbiting labs power system. NASA Flight Engineer Mark Vande Hei worked throughout the day inside the Kibo lab module on payload hardware that will quickly be positioned outside the station in the extreme environment of space. He will pass NASA astronaut Christina Kochs mark of 328 days on March 3, then he will break NASA astronaut Scott Kellys record of 340 days on March 15. When Vande Hei returns to Earth on March 30, he will hold the NASA single spaceflight record having actually spent 355 days in area.

The seven-member Expedition 66 team managed a variety of science experiments on Wednesday including area physics and human research study. 4 International Space Station astronauts also evaluated treatments for a set of spacewalks set to begin in less than two weeks.
A brand-new experiment on the spaceport station is utilizing expert system to assist process complex glasses in microgravity. NASA Flight Engineer Kayla Barron began setting up hardware for the Intelligent Glass Optics investigation in the Microgravity Science Glovebox today. The innovative physics study may supply insights into making systems for Earth and area consisting of communications, aerospace, and medical diagnostics.
Barron also signed up with fellow flight engineers Raja Chari and Thomas Marshburn from NASA and Matthias Maurer from ESA (European Space Agency) to prepare for 2 upcoming spacewalks to continue customizing the orbiting laboratorys power system. NASA TV will start its live spacewalk protection at 7:50 a.m. EST on both days.
