Operations and experiments on the International Space Station August 11, 2011. / August 11, 2011 /
August 11 focuses Russian segment of ISS crew will give boot removed from the station equipment in the cargo ship «Progress M-11M.» There will also be carried out to fuel tanks for water systems, «Electron», handling «Fungistatom» zones for interior panels of the FGB (Functional Cargo Block) and charge the batteries for camcorders experimental «relaxation.»
As a mandatory event daily service life-support systems (GM) plant.
In addition, Russian cosmonauts Andrei Borisenko, Alexander Samokutyaev and Sergei Volkov will spend writing reports for the Federal Space Agency website.
Mode control the orientation of the ISS American segment gyrodines.
The program of scientific experiments conducted on the Russian segment of ISS
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 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), «Octopus 2» (the study of the dynamics of body composition and distribution of human body fluids during prolonged space flight) «Pnevmokard» (to study the effect of space flight on the autonomic regulation of circulatory, respiratory and cardiac contractile function in prolonged space flight);
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);
exploration of the solar system, «BTN-Neutron» (the study of fast and thermal neutrons);
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);
remote sensing, «Microwave radiometry» (study of the characteristics of the underlying surface, ocean and atmosphere);
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), «Relaxation» (the study of relaxation processes of chemical reactions caused by the interaction of the jet engine exhaust ships with the upper atmosphere to analyze images and spectra in the UV range);
technical research and experiments, «range» (the study and use of signals of a global time from the ISS to refine your orbital motion), «SLS» (development of equipment and demonstration of Russian technology round-trip information Space laser line);
medical examination (daily ECG).
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).
