GCF-B experiment is a part of the science research activities to be performed aboard the ISS RS by Frank de Winne, ESA astronaut of Belgian nationality in the frame of the ODISSEA Project. The European Space Agency and Belgian Federal Office for Scientific, Technical and Cultural Affairs (OSTC) are customers of the preparation and implementation of the scientific program.


USED SCIENCE HARDWARE:

  • Transport container GCF-01;
  • Crystallization facility GCF-02,
    Including 23 GCBs accommodating capillaries (6 items in each GCB) with protein solutions.
 

PURPOSE:

Growth of crystals of biological macromolecules by counter-diffusion crystallisation technique in space flight. Comparison of quality of crystals grown in space and on ground.

OBJECTIVE:

Verification of results of the first flight GCF experiment that was performed during the second Russian visiting crew VC-2 mission in October 2001 with the Andromede Project.

EXPERIMENT RESULTS:

Grown protein crystals located in crystallization facility GCF-02.
