Cargo

The Dragon spacecraft will be filled with more than 4, 000 pounds of supplies and payloads, including critical materials to support more than 30 student research investigations and more than 35 of approximately 250 science and research investigations that will occur during Expeditions 44 and 45. Science payloads will offer new insight to combustion in microgravity, perform the first space-based observations of meteors entering Earth’s atmosphere, continue solving potential crew health risks, and make new strides toward being able to grow food in space.

Dragon’s mission will support important science and research investigations on the orbiting laboratory. Science payloads being delivered will offer new insight to combustion in microgravity, perform the first space-based observations of meteors entering Earth’s atmosphere, continue solving potential crew health risks, and make new strides towards being able to grow food in space.

Investigations continue to support astronaut Scott Kelly’s extended mission of one year in space, the latest step in the International Space Station’s role as a platform for preparing humanity for exploration into deeper space. Scientists and researchers will gain valuable data about the effects of microgravity during long-duration spaceflight on bone density, muscle mass, strength, vision and other aspects of human physiology.

A study preparing for future long-duration space missions uses the Veggie plant growth facility to cultivate a type of cabbage that is harvested in orbit with samples returned to Earth for testing. Organisms grow differently in space, from single-celled bacteria to plants and humans, and understanding how plants respond to microgravity is an important step toward enabling crew members to grow their own food on future missions.

The mission also will use Dragon’s unpressurized trunk to deliver the first of two International Docking Adapters to enable future commercial crew spacecraft, including the SpaceX Crew Dragon, to dock to the station.

After more than five weeks at the space station, the spacecraft will return with more than 1, 400 pounds of cargo, including crew supplies, hardware and computer resources, science experiments, space station hardware, and trash.

  • avatar How can you clean and check auto choke on 3.9 falcon motor?
    • start car then spray carby cleaner around the top of the carby and down into the jets while holding the throttle to about 3000 rpm the revs will die a bit when u do this so keep holding the throttle open until revs pick back up if the choke is working properly it should be fully open at operating temp
