This experiment basically consisted on recording aqueous and non-aqueous foams in microgravity environment. There were a total of 5 cell arrays, each of them comprised of 12 cylinders filled with different fluid mixtures samples. After shaking the cell array, the astronaut had to place ...

This year 3rd and 4th grade ESO students have followed the project called “Travel to the end of time”, in which they have made a tour to key moments of human evolution. This program takes place trough a collaboration agreement promoted by the ‘Comunidad de Madrid’, the Spanish Education Ministry and the CEIM Foundation. From time immemorial, the eagerness to travel has moved mankind to the unknown, and has made them reach unexpected places, sometimes even unexplainable at that time. In this context, on Saturday the 13th of March, 27 ESO students from the Educational Enrichment Program of the ‘Comunidad de Madrid ...

Fuente: Verhaert Space After the successful completion of the SODI IVIDIL experiment, E-USOC team is already working in the preparation of SODI COLLOID, which will be flown in the ULF4 (Space Shuttle Mission STS-132), and is expected to be finished before mission ULF6 (STS-134), when data drives will be brought back to ground. From now on, we will be in continuous contact and coordination with the COLLOID Scientific team (User Home Base) from Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA), the Payload Developers from Verhaert Space industry and our usual ESA colleagues. For further information read our complete article about SODI COLLOID experiment. ...

Source: ESA Last January 28th, IVIDIL was finally deinstalled, and officially successfully finished. A space experiment, from the operative point of view, is always a great challenge, since so many people from so many different working fields and specialties are involved. The intervention and commitment of quite a big number of actors from the American, Canadian and European space agencies and teams have made possible quick and effective solutions to all issues found during the preparation and execution of this experiment. E-USOC has lead the task to coordinate scientific team needs and top industry developers knowledge and experience, also ...

Since the first system activation of the Microgravity Science Glovebox for SODI-IVIDIL on October 5th, the completion of the whole set of runs with the cell array #1 have been sucessfully performed, including some additional re-runs of the experiment. Source: NASA Today, astronaut Bob successfully achieved the SODI-IVIDIL cell array and flash disk exchange activity. After the comissioning, some pictures were taken to check that everything was nominal on the experiment and the optics. E-USOC team is ready to support operations with this new cell array, whose beginning is scheduled on December 1st. So far, we’re very pleased about the evolution of these ...
