GRAPHABOX EXPERIMENT

russian
   

Experiment GRAPHABOX 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. The European Space Agency is a customer of the preparation and implementation of the research program.


USED SCIENCE HARDWARE:

  • GraPhoBox Launch Container
    consisting of

    • GraPhoBoxes with agar dishes with Arabidopsis Thaliana (2)

    • ABS container (electronic device)
    • Temperature data logger
  • GraPhaBox return container

SUPPORT EQUIPMENT:

Camera Nikon Coolpix 5400

CREW SUPPORT EQUIPMENT:

Camcorder DSR PD-150P

 

PURPOSE:

Assess the effect of phototropism (growth towards a light source) and gravitropism (growth towards the gravitational vector) on the basic architecture of plants.

OBJECTIVE:

Recording of germination features of wild-type and mutant seeds of Arabidopsis thaliana in dark and blue (465 nm) low fluence light onboard ISS RS.

EXPERIMENT RESULT:

Temperature values recorded by the temperature logger, as well as photo and video materials demonstrating plants growth in microgravity.
