Science Results for Everyone
The station rocks – and wobbles. Dynamic operations such as docking and extravehicular activity place varying loads on the space station. This investigation used an onboard accelerometer to compile data on the forces, external load, and accelerations that different activities cause. The data made it possible to determine characteristics for various configurations of the station and to develop algorithms to identify sources of disturbances and other loads. This will allow mathematical recreation of situations based on onboard sensors. During dynamic operations, the level of loading on the structures of modules did not exceed design values.
