Sunday, April 12 (L-1 day): An ISS Science, Research and Technology briefing was held at Kennedy’s Press Site at 1:30 p.m. and featured engineer and science participants including:
Marshall Porterfield, director, Space Life and Physical Sciences, NASA Headquarters
Kirt Costello, International Space Station deputy chief scientist, NASA’s Johnson Space Center
Mike Roberts, senior research pathway manager, CASIS
Noel Clark, principal investigator, Observation and Analysis of Smectic Islands In Space (OASIS), University of Colorado
Paola D. Pajevic, principal investigator, Osteocytes and Mechanomechano-transduction (Osteo-4), Harvard University
Science payloads will study new ways to possibly counteract the microgravity-induced cell damage seen during spaceflight, the effects of microgravity on the most common cells in bones, gather new insight that could lead to treatments for osteoporosis and muscle wasting conditions, continue studies into astronaut vision changes and test a new material that could one day be used as a synthetic muscle for robotics explorers of the future.
