TELe-Luminescence Analysis System: A crewmember installed the Observation Cartridge into the Observation System for a temperature checkout of TELLAS. Upon completion of the science run, the cartridge was removed, and the Equipment was closed out.

Installed in the Kibo module, the TELLAS facility can provide information that contributes to aging research and improves the health and longevity of people on Earth.

Astrobatics: A crewmember installed the Astrobatics Skins onto the Astrobee free flyer and assisted the ground teams in conducting science runs.

These maneuvers may be incorporated into future robotic missions and advanced terrestrial robotic applications.

HRF-1 provides an on-orbit laboratory that enables scientists conducting human life science research to evaluate the physiological, behavioral, and chemical changes induced by space flight.

Technology Box: A crewmember deployed the Technology Box hardware and initiated the science run.

The main objective of Technology Box is to conduct experiments gathered in support equipment called 'Platform', to illustrate science principles based on physics and chemistry.

CASA Outfitting: Today, the crew outfitted the Crew Alternate Sleeping Accommodation in the COL1O4 rack bay with a ZBook, iPad Pro, and Emergency Flashlight for Crew Occupancy.

A door prop was also built and installed to keep the CASA door open 1′ during crew occupancy.

The ZBook and iPad will be returned to their nominal location since crew is not moving into CASA. Node 3 Endcone Cleanout: Today, the crew cleaned out both the Node 3 Endcone and the Nanoracks Airlock in preparation for the install of the GITAI payload early next week.
