Operations and experiments on the International Space Station July 29, 2011. / July 29, 2011 /
July 29, the Russian segment of International Space Station, scheduled operations for the transfer compartment service module «Zvezda» to practice, practice transfer naddutyh suits in the transition bay (development of an emergency return to the transitional compartment), the preparation of a monoblock laser communication systems BTLS-H to be installed on the outer surface of the module «Zvezda» (experiment, «SLS»), an assembly of equipment for laying out the crew into space, re-entry spacecraft «Progress M-10M» quick removal of screw terminals and docking system of internal transition, the closure of the transfer hatches spacecraft "Progress M- 10M "Control and containment manholes, as well as maintenance of coolant.
ISS attitude control mode is supported on gyrodines American segment.
The program of scientific experiments conducted aboard the Russian segment of ISS:
study 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);
biomedical research «Biorisk» (study of the influence of space factors on the state of the systems micro-organisms substrates «as applied to 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 the development of the technology of their cultivation in microgravity conditions);
space biotechnology «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 particles of cosmic radiation), «lactol» (determine the effect of exposure to conditions of orbital flight on the growth, genetic and physiological characteristics of strain lactol-producer), «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), «Bacteriophage» (study of the effects of space flight on bacteriophages), «Calcium» (to study the effect of microgravity on the solubility of calcium phosphates in the water);
exploration of the solar system «BTN-Neutron» (the study of fast and thermal neutrons);
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);
technical studies and experiments «Range» (the study and use the signals of global time from the ISS to refine your orbital motion);
Remote Sensing of the Earth «Microwave Radiometry» (study of the characteristics of the underlying surface, ocean and atmosphere).
The ISS crew is working 28-second long expedition in the Russian Federal Space Agency cosmonaut commander Andrei Borisenko, flight engineers and Samokutyaeva Alexander Sergei Volkov (Roscosmos), Ronald Garan and Michael Fossum (NASA), Satoshi Furukawa (JAXA).
