February 6, 2013: Just Another Day on the International Space Station

By on 10:01 AM

As part of their daily update about goings-on on the ISS, Mission Control Houston presented a few of the scientific studies happening in orbit. Various observations about earthquakes and fishing patterns are underway, and there’re constant maintenance and inspections to make sure nothing goes wrong. There were also two particular scientific events of note yesterday. One, the Kibo robotic arm from Japan was used to inspect several experiments exposed to space. Two, an ongoing study called Matrishka involves measuring radiation dose types and amounts that astronauts are exposed to during long-term space missions. This last study is particularly important as the world moves – hopefully – toward long-term and long-reach space exploration.
