Geophysics research on ISS Russian Segment
Study of processes binding seismic processes and phenomena in the earth’s crust, magnetosphere, ionosphere and Van Allen belt, and physical nature of seismic effects in near-earth space, as well assessment of possible prediction of earthquakes by bursts of high-energy charged particles in near-earth space.
- Installing Vsplesk hardware inside the station and external to the pressurized module during EVA
- Recording bursts of high-energy particles in near-earth space.
Science Hardware Used:
- Internal cable set
- Cable holder
- Vsplesk cable kit
- Platform with locks
Investigation of physical processes in near-earth space using Vsplesk hardware will allow not only understand the nature of seismomagnetospheric phenomena, but also advance in solution of real-world problems in developing prediction methods for earthquakes by space systems.
Scientific data bank generated as a result of recording bursts of high-energy charged particles and measuring their spatial, time and energy characteristics.
