ISS Science for Everyone

Science Objectives for Everyone
Studying the characteristics of the ISS as an environment for research (Sreda ISS) investigates microaccelerations on the ISS RS during dynamic operations. The necessary data are collected and analyzed, including calculations to determine the magnetic field of the ISS itself using a mathematical model of the Earth’s magnetic field. The modes of operation of ISS system and science equipment are determined that ensure that requirements on conducting scientific research on the ISS RS are met.

Results/More Information

Fifty five experiment sessions were conducted. Measurements were taken automatically, without crew intervention. The motion control system equipment used operated nominally. In all the experiment sessions, the necessary telemetry was obtained. Studies were also conducted of the microgravity situation on the ISS during dynamic operations. The data obtained made it possible to conclude that the information, currently being received in the Sreda ISS experiment from nominal microacceleration sensors and the magnetometer, will not be sufficient in the stage of ISS operation as a scientific laboratory. Specialized science equipment needs to be created.
