On Tuesday afternoon, NASA Flight Engineer Kjell Lindgren set up hardware for the Intelligent Glass Optics experiment for operations inside the Microgravity Science Glovebox. Lindgren also joined his fellow flight engineers Jessica Watkins of NASA and Samantha Cristoforetti of the European Space Agency (ESA) in reconfiguring the NanoRacks Bishop airlock on Tuesday. Watkins started her day partnering with NASA Flight Engineer Bob Hines for an investigation that checks out how weightlessness impacts dexterous control. The duo took turns seated in a special apparatus inside the Columbus lab module to assist researchers understand how astronauts grip and manipulate things in area.

The duo took turns seated in a distinct device inside the Columbus laboratory module to assist researchers comprehend how astronauts grip and control items in area. Insights might notify the design of intelligent spacecraft user interfaces and provide a much deeper understanding of the human nervous system.
The 2 flight engineers from Roscosmos, Denis Matveev and Sergey Korsakov, collected microbe samples from modules in the stations Russian segment for analysis on Tuesday. Matveev likewise recorded his meals and beverages for a research study checking out space-caused bone loss. Station Commander Oleg Artemyev set up and checked a new 3-D printer inside the Nauka multipurpose lab module.

On Tuesday, July 5, space physics and human studies dominated the science program aboard the International Space Station. The Expedition 67 team likewise reconfigured a United States airlock and put a new 3D printer through its paces.
The absence of gravity in area effects a wide variety of physics exposing brand-new phenomena that researchers are studying to enhance life for humans on and off the Earth. One such project utilizes expert system to adjust complex glass production processes in microgravity with the objective of benefitting many Earth- and space-based industries. On Tuesday afternoon, NASA Flight Engineer Kjell Lindgren established hardware for the Intelligent Glass Optics experiment for operations inside the Microgravity Science Glovebox. Observations from the investigation may advance professions such as interactions, aerospace, astronomy, and medication.

Lindgren likewise joined his fellow flight engineers Jessica Watkins of NASA and Samantha Cristoforetti of the European Space Agency (ESA) in reconfiguring the NanoRacks Bishop airlock on Tuesday. The trio of astronauts worked throughout the day reinstalling hardware and stowing freight inside Bishop following its garbage disposal and robotic maneuvers over the weekend. Ground controllers commanded the Canadarm2 robotic arm to remove the airlock from the Tranquility module to jettison a garbage container on Saturday. The Canadarm2 then moved Bishop back to Tranquility where it was reattached quickly afterward.
