Today: Growth of Homogeneous SiGe Crystals in Microgravity by the TLZ Method (Hicari) Experiment: Flight Engineer (FE)-6 Wakata removed the Sample Cartridge Serial Number 004 from Sample Cartridge Automatic Exchange Mechanism (SCAM) holder #4.

NASA ISS On-Orbit Status 21 February 2014

Today: Aniso Tubule Experiment Operations: Today Flight Engineer (FE)-6 Wakata retrieved the Aniso Tublule sample from the Cell Biology Experiment Facility (CBEF) door where he had put it earlier this week, watered it, and placed it on the Multi-Purpose Small Payload Rack (MSPR) fluorescent microscope for 48 hours of observation.

NASA ISS On-Orbit Status 20 February 2014

Today: Spinal Ultrasound Scan Operations: Flight Engineer (FE)-3 Hopkins, with assistance from FE-6 Wakata and ground experts, performed his Flight Day 150 Spinal Ultrasound session. This investigation aims to characterize microgravity-associated spinal alterations during and after spaceflight using in-flight ultrasound. Results from this research will provide data to enhance crew health for long duration space missions.
