VIDEO-3 Experiment


Experiment VIDEO-3 is a part of the scientific research program to be conducted by ESA astronaut of the Dutch nationality Andre Kuipers onboard the ISS RS in the frame of DSM Delta Project, and is an extension of experiments VIDEO-2 (SSM Cervantes Project) and EDUCATION (Odissea Project). The European Space Agency is a customer of the preparation and implementation of the research program.


Objective:

Demonstrate some of the effects of weightlessness on the human body (e.g. blood pressure and circulation, fluid shift; increase in height by x cm; orientation awareness) by means of filming with voice-over 4 basic physiology experiments under weightless conditions on board the ISS. For all four experiments comparable on-ground experiments will be performed in order to familiarize students with the differences between the Earth and space environments.

Tasks:

Demonstration and filming of some effects of weightlessness with voice in space flight conditions onboard the ISS RS.

Consumables:

  • Mini DV videotapes.

Support Equipment:

  • Camera Nikon Coolpix 5400.
  • Camcoder DSR PD-150P.

Experiment Results:

Information recorded on mini-DV videotapes.
