Space Station Crew Conducts CSLM-2 Experiment in Glovebox

Expedition 7 NASA ISS Science Officer Ed Lu conducted another run Monday of the Coarsening of Solid-Liquid Mixtures-2, or CSLM-2, experiment in the Microgravity Science Glovebox. CSLM-2 is studying how the strength of a material is reduced during a process called coarsening. Also on the science front, Commander Yuri Malenchenko and Lu participated in a Russian biomedical experiment that is studying piloting skills.

Lu and Malenchenko took noise readings throughout the Station. Each wore a dosimeter to take the readings. They also took inventory of Russian medical kits and collected air samples.

Wednesday at 10:35 a.m. CDT (1535 GMT), the crewmembers will talk with student employees at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, and Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The conversation will be part of an education event that will air live on NASA TV at 10 a.m. CDT (1500 GMT).
