Astrobatics: The crew relocated items out of the experiment area, set up the appropriate hardware, and assisted the ground team with the Astrobatics experiment session tasks.

Food Physiology: The crew collected and processed fecal samples in support of the Food Physiology investigation.

The Integrated Impact of Diet on Human Immune Response, the Gut Microbiota, and Nutritional Status During Adaptation to Spaceflight experiment is designed to characterize the key effects of an enhanced spaceflight diet on immune function, the gut microbiome, and nutritional status indicators.

GRASP: The crew continued the GRASP experiment sessions, which were started earlier this week, and then stowed the hardware.

Investigating the Structure of Paramagnetic Aggregates from Colloidal Emulsions 4: The crew gathered the appropriate items and set up the InSPACE-4 experiment hardware in the Microgravity Science Glovebox.

Lumina: The crew transferred data from the Lumina device and used the EveryWear App on an iPad to change the parameter settings as appropriate.

Today, the crew configured EVA tools, setup D5 cameras, and charged the EVA GoPro batteries.

Regenerative ECLSS Recycle Tank Drain/Fill: Today, the crew set up the recycle tank to drain via the Urine Processor Assembly Fill Drain Valve into the Brine Processor using the Urine Transfer System.

Following the setup, the ground performed the tank drain using the UTS. Once the ground specialists completed the transfer, the crew verified the recycle tank was empty, terminated the drain, and repositioned the fill/drain valve to force fill the recycle tank using UTS. The crew also swapped the in the offload spot of the UTS. Environmental Health System Total Organic Carbon Analyzer Water Recovery System Sample Analysis & Data Record: The crew performed an analysis of the water processing assembly using the TOCA. The TOCA unit oxidizes organic carbon species present in the water to carbon dioxide gas and measures the concentration using nondispersive infrared spectroscopy.

Personal Carbon Dioxide Monitors Operations: Three Personal CO2 monitors were charged and calibrated today for deployment in Crew Alternate Sleep Accommodation.
