Studi tentang sistem saraf dan persiapan untuk perjalanan luar angkasa berlanjut di Stasiun Luar Angkasa Internasional

Nanoracks Bishop Airlock difoto dalam genggaman lengan robot Canadarm2 saat diposisikan jauh dari Stasiun Luar Angkasa Internasional. Platform komersial itu bermanuver sebelum membuang tong sampah untuk menyingkirkan api, tetapi pembuangan yang aman dari atmosfer bumi. Bishop adalah airlock multi-faceted yang terhubung ke modul Tranquility yang digunakan tidak hanya untuk pembuangan sampah, tetapi juga untuk menampung muatan penelitian, menyebarkan satelit, dan berfungsi sebagai test bed untuk berbagai teknologi ruang angkasa.

Sementara terus menjadi tuan rumah sejumlah eksperimen sains tingkat lanjut, Stasiun Luar Angkasa Internasional (ISS) juga sibuk dengan persiapan perjalanan ruang angkasa. Awak ekspedisi 67 yang beranggotakan tujuh orang juga memastikan operasi penelitian dan peralatan elektronik yang berkesinambungan sambil memeriksa perlengkapan kantor stasiun.

Dalam gayaberat mikro, kurangnya referensi naik dan turun dapat memengaruhi sistem saraf manusia, yang dapat memengaruhi cara anggota kru berinteraksi dengan perangkat pesawat ruang angkasa.[{” attribute=””>NASA Flight Engineers Bob Hines and Jessica Watkins studied how weightlessness influences an astronaut’s ability to grip and manipulate objects with continued work on the GRIP experiment in the Columbus laboratory module on Thursday. Hines and Watkins took turns conducting the investigation while lying flat on their backs as scientists monitored from the ground. The pair of astronauts had performed research operations from a seated position earlier in the week.

Jessica Watkins then spent the rest of the day working on electronics gear and connections inside the Harmony module. Bob Hines swapped air supply hoses ensuring the proper airflow inside the Quest airlock.

NASA Flight Engineer Kjell Lindgren started his morning in the Kibo laboratory module servicing a specialized microscope that uses spatial filtering techniques to observe cellular and tissue structures. Afterward, he moved on to a space manufacturing study observing a run of the Intelligent Glass Optics study that incorporates artificial intelligence into its methodology.

Two veteran station crew members, ESA (European Space Agency) Flight Engineer Samantha Cristoforetti and Roscosmos Commander Oleg Artemyev, resumed their preparations today for an upcoming spacewalk. The duo from Italy and Russia will exit the station Poisk airlock at 10 a.m. on June 21 and spend approximately seven hours continuing to outfit the European robotic arm attached to the Nauka multipurpose laboratory module.

Cosmonaut and Flight Engineer Denis Matveev inventoried station supplies, including printing paper, ink cartridges, and batteries, throughout the station’s Russian segment. Roscosmos Flight Engineer Sergey Korsakov configured nanosatellites that will be deployed during the upcoming July 21 spacewalk.
