ISS On-Orbit Status Report

Payloads: Actiwatch Plus:  A crewmember connected up to four Actiwatch Plus devices to the HRF...

Immersive Exercise: A crewmember performed the setup of the Immersive Exercise hardware, run an exercise session, fill the questionnaire and restowed the hardware items.

The PPFS, provided by the European Space Agency, is new equipment added to the already developed European Pressurized Module pool of instruments.

Space Acceleration Measurement System-II is an ongoing study of the small forces on the International Space Station resulting from the operation of hardware, crew activities, dockings and maneuvering.

Results generalize the types of vibrations affecting vibration-sensitive experiments and structural life of ISS. Investigators and Structural Analysts seek to better understand the vibration environment on the ISS using SAMS-II data and assessing station loads and dynamics.

Technology Box: A crewmember performed troubleshooting activities prior in preparation of Technology Box operations.

Touching Surfaces: A crewmember performed touching operations on the Touch Array and reported data via the EveryWear application.

Previous space research conducted during short-term flight experiments and long-term environmental monitoring on board orbiting space stations suggests that the relationship between humans and microbes is altered in the crewed habitat in space.

This interdisciplinary project Touching Surfaces aims to investigate novel, laser-structured antimicrobial surfaces onboard the ISS. The realistic testing of the tailor-made nanostructured antimicrobial surface in space allows for the determination of the most suitable design for antimicrobial surfaces for terrestrial applications such as public transportation and clinical settings, as well as future human space mission and habitation design.

Items of discussion included procedure strategy and intent, communication and coordination, crew accountability, access to escape vehicles, Safe Haven, segment expertise, buddy system, PPE, and the ISS Commander's responsibilities.

Due to the complex nature of emergencies in space, it is imperative that each crewmember and spaceflight participant is familiar with the various emergency procedures and strategies in place.
