Expedition 12 (ISS-12)

Experiments Program

During ISS-12, 318 sessions of 44 experiments are to be implemented. Thirty five experiments were started in the previous increments. Nine experiments ("Volny", "Bioemulsia", "RadioSkaf", "Sreda", "Infotech", "JAXA-3DPC", "SCN", "NOA", "Immuno") are new.
