Crew Research Fireplace in Microgravity, Exams a Medical Gadget, and Transfers Cargo from Dragon – House Station


Expedition 67 Flight Engineer and NASA astronaut Jessica Watkins services components that support the Solid Fuel Ignition and Extinction (SOFIE) fire safety experiment inside the International Space Station's Combustion Integrated Rack on June 24, 2022.
Expedition 67 Flight Engineer and NASA astronaut Jessica Watkins providers parts that assist the Stable Gas Ignition and Extinction (SOFIE) hearth security experiment contained in the Worldwide House Station’s Combustion Built-in Rack on June 24, 2022.

The seven-member Expedition-67 crew break up their time learning burning in microgravity, area manufacturing, testing an ultrasound machine, and extra, along with conducting some upkeep work aboard the Worldwide House Station.

NASA Flight Engineer Jessica Watkins centered on organising the Combustion Built-in Rack contained in the U.S. Future laboratory module to assist the operations for the SoFIE-GEL, or Stable Gas Ignition and Extinction – Development and Extinction Restrict, research. The investigation measures the quantity of heating in a gas pattern to find out how gas temperature impacts materials flammability. Outcomes may enhance understanding of early hearth development habits and assist decide optimum hearth suppression methods, enhancing crew security in future area services.

NASA Flight Engineer Kjell Lindgren opened the Cell Biology Experiment Facility to arrange the Rodent Analysis-22 experiment. He additionally accomplished a Robotic On-Board Coach for Analysis (ROBoT-r) session as a part of the Behavioral Core Measures experiment. Later within the day, Lindgren carried out the fourth medical expertise demonstration of the Butterfly IQ Ultrasound machine, centered on testing the effectiveness of a conveyable ultrasound machine used together with a cell machine within the area setting. Such industrial off-the-shelf expertise may present important medical capabilities for future deep area exploration missions.

ESA (European House Company) Flight Engineer Samantha Cristoforetti carried out public affairs actions for ESA and moved cargo from the SpaceX CRS-25 Dragon spacecraft. NASA Flight Engineer Bob Hines labored on the Genes in House-9 investigation,  House Fibers-3 area manufacturing research, and transferred provides from the Dragon spacecraft.

The station’s three cosmonauts centered primarily on upkeep and train. Commander Oleg Artemyev spent his morning trying to find leaks within the Zvezda service module whereas cosmonaut Sergey Korsakov checked the brakes on the European Robotic Arm. Cosmonaut Denis Matveev arrange an electrocardiogram for a 24-hour survey of his coronary heart well being. He rested for 20 minutes earlier than utilizing the Tranquility module’s superior resistive train machine (ARED) to carry out workout routines corresponding to bench presses, squats, and deadlifts.
