Contract activities on ISS Russian Segment

Experiment Pille-Simonyi-2


Pille-Simonyi-2 Experiment is part of science research program implemented onboard the ISS RS by spaceflight participant, U.S. citizen Charles Simonyi; this experiment is continuation of "Pille-ISS", experiment performed during VC-12 time. The Space Adventures Company is the Customer to prepare and conduct this experiment.


Objective:

Determination experimentally of value of accumulated dose resulting from ionizing radiation of space, which was taken by Ch. Simonyi as a space flight participant during VC-16 visiting crew flight onboard the Souyz TMA-14 manned transport spacecraft and the ISS Russian Segment modules.

Tasks:

  • Measurement of Ch. Simonyi (space flight participant) exposure to radiation over the entire period of VC-16 flight.
  • Obtaining experimental data on value of ionizing radiation dose taken by Ch. Simonyi onboard the Soyuz TMA-14 manned transport spacecraft during the free flight.
  • Obtaining of daily experimental data on value of ionizing radiation dose taken by Ch. Simonyi throughout VC-16 flight.
  • Determination of radiological situation in the ISS RS measurement areas when conducting space experiment during VC-16 flight.

Science Hardware Used:

Dose meter "Pille-ISS" containing:

  • panel of dose meter "Pille-ISS";
  • sensor of dose meter "Pille-ISS" (10 pcs.);
  • tray for sensors.

Digital camera Nikon D2X.

Consumables:

Kit "Pille-Simonyi-2" containing:

  • sensors "Pille-ISS" (4 pcs.);
  • memory cards CF 2Mb (3 pcs);
  • bag for kit "Pille-Simonyi-2".

Experiment Results:

Memory cards to be delivered to Earth, with the data and photographs taken during conduct of the experiment.
