Nervous System Study and Spacewalk Preps Continue on International Space Station

The Nanoracks Bishop Airlock is imagined in the grips of the Canadarm2 robotic arm as it is placed away from the International Space Station. Bishop is a multi-faceted airlock attached to the Tranquility module used not just to discard trash, however likewise to host research payloads, release satellites, and serve as a testbed for a variety of space innovations. At the right, the Canadarm2 is connected to the U.S. Destiny laboratory module as ground controllers remotely navigate the robotic arm. NASA Flight Engineers Bob Hines and Jessica Watkins studied how weightlessness affects an astronauts capability to grip and control things with ongoing work on the GRIP experiment in the Columbus lab module on Thursday.

NASA Flight Engineer Kjell Lindgren started his morning in the Kibo laboratory module servicing a specialized microscopic lense that utilizes spatial filtering strategies to observe cellular and tissue structures. Later, he carried on to a space production study observing a run of the Intelligent Glass Optics study that integrates synthetic intelligence into its method.
2 veteran station team members, ESA (European Space Agency) Flight Engineer Samantha Cristoforetti and Roscosmos Commander Oleg Artemyev, resumed their preparations today for an upcoming spacewalk. The duo from Italy and Russia will leave the station Poisk airlock at 10 a.m. on June 21 and invest roughly 7 hours continuing to outfit the European robotic arm connected to the Nauka multipurpose laboratory module.
Cosmonaut and Flight Engineer Denis Matveev inventoried station supplies, including printing paper, ink cartridges, and batteries, throughout the stations Russian segment. Roscosmos Flight Engineer Sergey Korsakov set up nanosatellites that will be deployed throughout the upcoming July 21 spacewalk.

The industrial platform was being maneuvered prior to rejecting a trash container for a fiery, however safe disposal above Earths environment.

While continuing to host a range of innovative science experiments, the International Space Station (ISS) is likewise busy with spacewalk preparations. The seven-member Expedition 67 team likewise guaranteed the ongoing operation of research study gear and electronics devices while auditing station office supplies.
NASA Flight Engineers Bob Hines and Jessica Watkins studied how weightlessness influences an astronauts ability to grip and control things with ongoing work on the GRIP experiment in the Columbus lab module on Thursday. The pair of astronauts had performed research study operations from a seated position earlier in the week.

Jessica Watkins then invested the remainder of the day dealing with electronics equipment and connections inside the Harmony module. Bob Hines swapped air supply hoses ensuring the appropriate air flow inside the Quest airlock.
