Experiment Sample-LDM


Objectives:

  • Investigate the behavior of cosmonaut microbiota and its interaction with the ISS microbiota in spaceflight.
  • Evaluate microbial species, which might inhabit the ISS.

Tasks:

  • Microbial sampling from the Russian cosmonaut and various surfaces on the ISS RS for further strains isolation and investigation of their adhesion abilities

Science Hardware Used:


  • SAMPLE Collection Kit including SAMPLE sub-packs to take samples from various surfaces (computers, "walls", "personal cabins", technical equipment, etc.) and from the astronaut.

  • SAMPLE Specimen Case filled with biological objects.

  • KUBIK TOPAZ container, a thermally insulated container (incubator) for stowage of partial samples before the download.

Experiment Results:

Microbial samples taken on the ISS RS in microgravity conditions.
