Operations and experiments on the International Space Station July 15, 2011. / July 15, 2011 /
July 15 the Russian segment of International Space Station scheduled for unloading the ship «Progress M-11M» and inventory delivered by cargo, maintenance work on life-support systems, and medical research the study of orthostatic stability when exposed to negative pressure in the lower body.
ISS attitude control is maintained at gyrodines American segment.
The program of scientific experiments on the ISS RS:
Biomedical research: «Biorisk» (study of the influence of space factors on the state system «microorganisms substrates» for the problem of ecological safety of space vehicles and planetary quarantine), «Plants-2» (the study of growth and development of higher plants, as well as working out technologies of their cultivation in microgravity), «Sonokard» (the study of physiological functions by a non-contact while sleeping during long-duration space flight);
Investigation of the physical conditions in space orbiting the Earth, «Matryoshka-R» (the study of the dynamics of the radiation environment on the flight path and in ISS compartments, and dose accumulation in the anthropomorphic phantom, placed inside the station);
Exploration of the solar system, «BTN-Neutron» (the study of fast and thermal neutrons);
Space biotechnology «lactol» (to determine the effect of the exposure conditions of orbital flight on the growth, genetic and physiological characteristics of the producer strain lactol), «Biotrack» (the study of the correlation between the change in genetic properties, the productivity of recombinant strains in microgravity and the effects on them of heavy charged cosmic ray particles), «Bacteriophage» (study of the effects of space flight on bacteriophages), «Ginseng-2» (to study the characteristics of a cell culture of ginseng and other crops in order to identify opportunities to increase their biological activity), «Calcium» (to study the effect of microgravity on the solubility of calcium phosphates in the water);
Geophysics and near-Earth space, «Lightning-Gamma» (investigating atmospheric flashes of gamma radiation and optical activity in a thunderstorm), «Splash» (monitoring of seismic effects bursts of high energy particles in near-Earth space);
Remote sensing, «Microwave radiometry» (study of the characteristics of the underlying surface, ocean and atmosphere);
Technical research and experiments, «range» (the study and use of signals of a global time from the ISS to refine your orbital motion), «Bend» (a study on the effect of the operation of onboard systems in terms of the ISS).
The ISS crew work together to 28th in the long-term expedition commander astronaut Andrew Roscosmos Borisenko, flight engineers and Samokutyaev Alexander Sergei Volkov (Roscosmos), Ronald Garan and Michael Fossum (NASA), Satoshi Furukawa (JAXA) and the ship "Atlantis» STS -135: NASA astronauts, Christopher Ferguson, Douglas Hurley, and Sandra Magnus Rex Uolheym.
