NOBEL nominated, TESTED Laser Plasma Shield (adopted by ESA-NASA-Harvard-McGill) to REPEL all deadly space threats, as asteroids & solar superstorms that may blow up all nuclear, as we thankfully escaped in July 2012!
This colorful image, taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, celebrates the Earth-orbiting observatory’s 28th anniversary of viewing the heavens, giving us a window seat to the universe’s extraordinary stellar tapestry of birth and destruction.
Miniature Exercise Device (MED-2): The crew set up cameras in Node 3 to capture video from multiple views of the Advanced Resistive Exercise Device (ARED) and MED-2 hardware. They applied body markers, performed dead lifts and rowing exercises and then transferred the video for downlink. The ISS’s exercise equipment is large and bulky, while the … Continu […]
Ku Control Unit (KCU) Software Transition: Following yesterday’s swap to KCU2, running the new R4 software, the KCU2 modem card stopped processing Ku forward commands. An eventual power cycle of the entire KCU2 unit recovered KCU2 forward link. Later the KCU2 modem card once again stopped processing Ku forward commands. Ku was transitioned back to … Continue […]
Metabolic Tracking (MT): The crew set up the hardware and materials to support two separate sessions of thawing and inoculation today for the MT investigation. They injected the thawed inoculum into multiwell BioCells, and inserted them into a NanoRacks Plate Reader. Samples were placed into a Minus Eighty Degree Celsius Laboratory Freezer for ISS (MELFI). […]
Metabolic Tracking (MT): Earlier today the crew set up the MT hardware and materials for thawing and inoculation. They then injected the thawed inoculum into multiwell BioCells, and inserted them into a NanoRacks Plate Reader. The crew also took samples from the BioCell B group and placed them into a Minus Eighty Degree Celsius Laboratory … Continue reading […]
