Expedition 7 (ISS-7)

Experiments Program

In the course of ISS-7, 110 sessions on 38 experiments are to be implemented. Thirty three experiments have already been started in the previous expeditions. Five experiments ("Pilot", "Intercellular interaction", "Konjugatsia", "MSK", "STARMAIL") are new.
