CRS 1 the payload

Sunday, 7 October 2012


Crew Supplies 260 pounds (118 kilograms)
• 8 Bulk Overwrap Bags • Food, about 29 Bonus food rations
• 5 bags low sodium food kits • About 22 rations
• Crew clothing • 8.8 pounds (4 kilograms)
• Pantry items (batteries, etc) • 8.8 pounds (4 kilograms)
• Official Flight Kit • 17.6 pounds (8 kilograms)
Utilization Payloads  390 pounds (177 kilograms)
• US National Aeronautics and Space Agency and U.S.
National Laboratory
o GLACIER o General Laboratory Active Cryogenic ISS Experiment
Refrigerator, ultra-cold freezers that will store samples
at temperatures as low as - 301 degrees F (-160
degrees C).
o Fluids and Combustion Facility
Hardware
o Fluids Integrated Rack (FIR) is a complementary fluid
physics research facility designed to host investigations
in areas such as colloids, gels, bubbles, wetting and
capillary action, and phase changes, including boiling
and cooling.
o CGBA/Micro-6 o Commercial Generic Bioprocessing Apparatus-Micro-6
looks at responses of Candida albicans to spaceflight,
studying how microgravity affects the health risk posed
by the opportunistic yeast Candida albicans.
o AMS Cables o Cables for Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer.
o CFE-2 o Capillary Flow Experiments - 2 (CFE-2) is a suite of fluid
physics experiments that investigates how fluids move
up surfaces in microgravity. The results aim to improve
current computer models that are used by designers of
low gravity fluid systems and may improve fluid
transfer systems for water on future spacecraft.
o MISSE-8 Retrieval Bag o Materials on International Space Station Experiment - 8
(MISSE-8) is a test bed for materials and computing
elements attached to the outside of the station.
o Double Cold Bags  o Two bags, used to refrigerate samples for transport.10
Utilization Payloads  390 pounds (177 kilograms)
• JAXA Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency
o EPO-10 o Education Payload Operations-10 (Blue Earth Gazing)
records video education demonstrations highlighting
various fundamental scientific principles performed by
crewmembers using hardware already onboard the
station.
o Resist Tubule o Role of Microtubule-Membrane-Cell Wall Continuum in
Gravity Resistance in Plants (Resist Wall) investigation
was conducted to determine the importance of the
structural connections between microtubules, plasma
membrane, and the cell wall as the mechanism of
gravity resistance.
o Ammonia Test Kit
• ESA European Space Agency
o Biolab o Biological Experiment Laboratory in Columbus (BioLab)
is a multiuser research facility located in the European
Columbus laboratory. It will be used to perform space
biology experiments on microorganisms, cells, tissue
cultures, small plants, and small invertebrates.
o Energy o Astronaut's Energy Requirements for Long-Term Space
Flight (Energy) will measure changes in energy balance
in crew members
