The Expedition 52 crew explored ways to rebuild bone and prevent further bone loss on Earth and in space and studied the cardiovascular changes that take place on orbit. A new roll-out solar array was deployed for a demonstration and an experiment was installed outside the station to observe neutron stars for new astronomical and navigational insights.
