Science Continues on Station, New Crew Members Prepare for Launch

ISS Status Report

Expedition 25 Commander Doug Wheelock and Flight Engineer Shannon Walker participated in experiments that study long-term exposure to microgravity’s effects on a crew member’s body. Wheelock collected biological samples for stowage inside the Human Research Facility – a science rack in the Destiny laboratory. Walker evaluated her diet and documented her sleep patterns to determine how the lack of an Earth-bound 24-hour cycle (circadian rhythm) affects crew performance.
