25 Utilisation achievements: Biology (1/2) BIOLAB WAICO Run#1 EMCS / 30. April 2009 CWRW Universität Stuttgart Partially successful WAICO-1 in Incr.16. BIOLAB facility repairs and function re-verification in progress. H/W optimized for WAICO-2 experiment. Successful Experiment Sequence Test (EST) for WAICO-2 performed at MUSC. Flight experiment execution deferred to Incr.20 (launch on 2J/A). JAXA s CW/RW experiment completed via N-USOC ops and plants downloaded on 1J. EMCS hydration problem analysis concluded and spares upload + functional checkout for GENARA experiment planned for Incr. 20/21.

26 Utilisation achievements: Biology (2/2) 4 short duration experiments performed during visiting Soyuz flight in Russian Segment during 17S/16S joint mission. Very promising results for the XENOPUS and ROALD experiments. Growth anomaly for BASE-B/C experiment, not fully understood at this stage Smooth support from BIOTESC USOC, an asset when KUBIK will be relocated in EDR Facility. XENOPUS ROALD BASE-B / BASE-C KUBIK BIO#4

27 Utilisation achievements: Fluid Physics FSL - Geoflow Successful completion of FSL on-orbit repairs with substantial utilisation crew time. Performance of 2 optical checkout modes. Activation of GEOFLOW experiment (10 runs of 67 performed) with excellent interferometric image data. Recently, misfortunate failure of a thermal control loop pump in the Experiment Container. ESA will return the experiment on ground for troubleshooting. FSL / GEOFLOW

28 Utilisation achievements: Human physiology 3D-SPACE: SOLO: First test subject accomplished in Incr. 17/18. First neuroscience experiment in Columbus! Successful first test subject accomplished in Incr. 17/18. Complex experiment which requires use of HRF-1 / HRF-2 and EPM racks. On-going second and third test subject EPM: MEEMM check-out completed in order to support the implementation of NEUROSPAT experiment in Incr. 20. NOA-1/-2: Upload of new instrument in Incr. 16. Successful completion of all runs by Russian cosmonauts. Experiment series fully completed. NOA-1/- 2 3D-SPACE SOLO MEEMM Check-Out

29 Utilisation achievements: EuTEF platform EuTEF (9 experiments) Platform successfully checked-out 3 weeks after the 1E mission. Continuous science acquisition for 8 of the 9 instruments (nominal) for technology physical/debris/radiation/exobiology research. Safety issue for the Plasma Contactor instrument has limited the operational mode of the EuTEF platform for several weeks during Incr. 17. Large set of exobiology samples in the trays of the EXPOSE-E instrument. Return of the whole EuTEF platform is confirmed with Shuttle 17A mission (Aug 2009).

30 Utilisation achievements: SOLAR platform Platform successfully checked-out after the 1E mission. Initial glitches in the Sun tracking software, but solved. Continuous science acquisition with the 3 instruments, for periods of ~10days every month (depending on beta angle conditions). Outstanding results with SOLACES, under a cooperative effort with NASA measurements during sounding rocket campaigns. Recently failure on SOVIM instrument, which leads to operations termination. But also very good results reported by scientists. Return of the platform is planned with Shuttle 19A mission (Mar 2010). SOLAR (3 experiments) SOLACES SOLSPEC SOVIM

31 Utilisation achievements: Radiation research EXPOSE-R (IBMP) MATROSHKA- 2 Significant part of the ESA research portfolio on various platforms (ISS, Foton). Continuation from ESA-Russian science cooperation (ALTCRISS and MATROSHKA in ISS Russian Segment). Delayed deployment of EXPOSE-R due to communication problem during installation attempt in Dec 2008 Russian EVA. Deployment re-scheduled in near future. Activities soon complemented by radiation monitoring activities in Columbus Module starting in Incr. 19 and MATROSHKA in Kibo. ALTCRISS (IBMP)

32 Utilisation achievements: Education activities Video Lessons organized with astronauts in order to demonstrate or film the life support systems and other (health & nutritional) equipment on-board the ISS. The recorded footage is used to develop an ESA Video Lesson about life support systems and/ or Health & Nutrition. Target audience: 12 to 18-years old students. Various scripts: Food storage and retrieval before a celebration group meal, as well as a description of the food and the difference between the US and Russian food; An ordinary breakfast during a working day on the ISS, within the Service Module; Demonstrate how effective industrial design can help overcome the living/working problems on the ISS. VLE-1
