Station Crew Begins New Week of Science

ISS News

Systems aboard the International Space Station continue to perform well as the Expedition 16 crew kicked off a new week of science research and station maintenance.

The crew began Monday collecting blood samples for an ongoing study of human physiological changes during long-duration spaceflight. The results of this experiment will aid in the definition of nutritional requirements and development of food systems for future space exploration missions to the moon and Mars.

Flight Engineer Yuri Malenchenko continued unloading and inventorying supplies that arrived aboard the ISS Progress 28 spacecraft on Feb. 7. Progress 28 delivered nearly 5,200 pounds of cargo to the orbital outpost.

Ten Reasons to Love the International Space Station

ARISS

It's been called a white elephant, an orbital turkey, a money pit, and an expensive erector set. Seemingly, there's even people at NASA who think building it was a mistake. The International Space Station has been plagued with repeated delays, cost overruns, and bad press. Additionally, the ISS has never really caught the fancy of the general public and most likely there's a fair percentage of the world's population who have absolutely no idea there's a construction project the size of two football fields going on in orbit over their heads.
