Operations and experiments on the International Space Station September 27 2011. / September 27, 2011 /
Russian Federal Space Agency cosmonaut September 27 Sergei Volkov, flight engineer of ISS will be cleaned air vents on the interior panels of the block «Dawn», an inspection and photographing condition germokompleksa block «Dawn» and the obligatory maintenance life-support system (coolant).
Among the scientific experiments planned for the ISS RS, a Russian cosmonaut will perform:
Investigation of the physical conditions in space orbiting the Earth:
study 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 («Matryoshka-R»).
study of growth and development of higher plants, as well as the development of the technology of their cultivation in microgravity («Plants-2»);
applied to the problem of ecological safety of space technology and planetary quarantine («Biorisk»).
The experiments on space biotechnology:
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 («Biotrack»);
determine the effect of exposure to conditions of orbital flight on the growth, genetic and physiological characteristics of the producer strain lactol («lactol»);
study of the effects of space flight on bacteriophages («bacteriophage»);
to study the characteristics of a cell culture of ginseng and other crops in order to identify opportunities to increase their biological activity («Ginseng-2»).
Exploration of the solar system:
study of fast and thermal neutrons («BTN-Neutron»).
Experiments on geophysics and exploration of near space:
Monitoring seismic effects bursts of high energy particles in near-Earth space («Splash»);
study of atmospheric gamma bursts and optical radiation in terms of thunderstorm activity («Lightning-Gamma»).
Experiments on Remote Sensing of the Earth:
study of the characteristics of the underlying surface, ocean and atmosphere («microwave radiometry»);
experimental testing method interaction crew of the Russian segment of International Space Station with the courts Rosrybolovstva to search for and development of industrial-productive areas of the ocean («Seiner»).
Technical research and experiments:
testing of equipment and demonstration of Russian technology round-trip information Space laser line («SLS» stand-by mode).
The ISS crew continues to work the 29th long-term expedition composed of the commander Michael Fossum (NASA), flight engineers Sergei Volkov (Roscosmos) and Satoshi Furukawa (JAXA).
