Expedition 16 (ISS-16)

Experiments Program

During ISS-16, it is planned to implement 251 sessions of 55 experiments. Fourty four experiments have been started during the previous increments. Eleven experiments (Sonocard, Lactolen, ARIL, OChB, Astrovakcina, Zhenshen-2, Bar, JAXA 3DPC-2, AT-SPACE, BIOKIN 4, PKINASE) are new ones.
