NASA Public Affairs Officer Amiko Kauderer talks with Tara Ruttley, Associate Program Scientist for International Space Station, about some of the science experiments performed by the Expedition 33 crew members aboard the station throughout the week.

As Associate Program Scientist for ISS, Rutley helps to coordinate the research that happens on the station and identifies the various impacts of the science experiments and research that is conducted. She also helps to prioritize the science, makes sure it is implemented and makes sure that the needs of the investigators are met. After the experiments are concluded, her team works to gather the results and communicates the results to the public.

Some of the station experiments and research discussed were VO2Max, the Aquatic Habitat and Micro-6.
