Les 11 astronautes et cosmonautes qui vivent à bord de la Station spatiale internationale ont travaillé aujourd’hui sur une multitude d’expériences scientifiques qui pourraient améliorer la vie des humains sur et hors de la Terre. La recherche spatiale sur le laboratoire orbital a porté sur la biologie, la physique et l’observation de la Terre.

Le commandant de l’expédition 67, Tom Marshburn, a installé un glucomètre et des tubes de sang afin d’étudier comment la vie en apesanteur affecte la résistance à l’insuline de l’homme. Vieillissement vasculaire étude. Il a également continué à aider les quatre astronautes de la mission Axiom 1 (Ax-1) à se familiariser avec les opérations à bord de la station spatiale.

NASA Flight Engineer Kayla Barron worked inside the Life Science Glovebox and set up the Fluidic Space Optics experiment that could impact the development of space telescopes. ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Matthias Maurer collected air samples for chemical analysis then set up blood collection hardware for the Myotones muscle biomechanics study.

Veteran astronaut and Ax-1 Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria researched how space affects brain activity and increases the risk of cancer. Ax-1 Pilot Larry Connor also explored brain dynamics, then installed a miniature antenna demonstration, and held an educational event with students on Earth.

The two Ax-1 Mission Specialists also had a full schedule researching a variety of space phenomena throughout the orbiting lab on Tuesday. Israeli crew member Eytan Stibbe assisted Connor with the antenna work then focused on the space liquid behavior study that Barron had set up earlier. Mark Pathy from Canada photographed Earth landmarks from inside the cupola then explored holoportation while wearing an augmented reality headset.

The station’s three cosmonauts from Roscosmos focused on their contingent of activities throughout the orbiting lab’s Russian segment. Veteran cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev worked on cargo activities inside the ISS Progress 79 resupply ship, then joined first time space-flyer Sergey Korsakov and trained for operations of the European Robotic Arm. New cosmonaut Denis Matveev studied advanced Earth photography techniques and worked on maintenance activities
