Operations and experiments on the International Space Station August 1, 2011. / August 1, 2011 /
August 1 at the Russian segment of International Space Station crew members are going to check the organization of communication systems and spacesuits for the workout to workout in front of spacesuits spacewalk to accomplish the charging battery of scientific instruments to experiment with «Hurricane.»
ISS attitude control mode is supported on gyrodines American segment.
The program of scientific experiments conducted aboard the Russian segment of ISS:
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), «Typology» (the study of typological characteristics of operator activity in ISS stages of long-term space flight);
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);
exploration of the solar system, «BTN-Neutron» (the study of fast and thermal neutrons);
biotechnology space, «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), «Seiner» (experimental testing methods of 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 oceans);
technical research and experiments, «range» (the study and use of signals of a global time from the ISS to refine your orbital motion).
The ISS crew members continue to work the 28th long-term expedition Russian Federal Space Agency cosmonaut commander Andrei Borisenko, flight engineers and cosmonauts Alexander Samokutyaev Sergei Volkov (Roscosmos), astronaut Ronald Garan and Michael Fossum (NASA), Satoshi Furukawa (JAXA).
