Репортаж, посвященный юбилею Мытищинского филиала МГТУ им. Н.Э.БауманаOleg Skripochka (pilot-cosmonaut, Hero of Russia) As You know, a large number of experiments are conducted on the International Space Station. We told You about many of them in reports of the Korolev Planet Web site. Many scientists and specialists from various research organizations and institutes participate in the formulation, implementation and processing of the results of these experiments. Today we want to talk about one of such participants – the Mytishchi branch of Bauman MSTU (the former Forestry Institute).
This year the University has a double anniversary – 60 years of the Space Faculty and the Institute itself celebrates its 100th anniversary. The Space Faculty at the Forestry Institute is not for nothing. After all Russia has a huge stock of forest and agricultural land occupying 83% of the territory of our country. Control and monitoring of such vast territories cannot be carried out without the use of space technology.

Dear visitors to the Korolev Planet web site,
I’m Oleg Skripochka, flight engineer of Expedition Sixty One to the International Space Station and today I’m going to tell you about a new interesting space Experiment.
While onboard the ISS, we, cosmonauts can look at our planet from the outside and see how beautiful, alive and radiant it is, and how many amazing things are going on down there. We can clearly see cities, auroras, lightings.
But there are many things which escape our sight!

Космический эксперимент «Ряска»Alexander Ovchinin:
Dear visitors to the Korolev Planet web site,
I’m Alexei Ovchinin, flight engineer of Expedition Fifty Nine to the International Space Station, and today I’m going to tell you about an educational scientific experiment Duckweed, in support of which a Local Illumination System payload has been recently delivered to the ISS.
This experiment is intended to demonstrate to students some peculiarities in the development of the duckweed plant in zero-gravity environment. This plant was chosen for the experiment because it requires little maintenance and grows fast, and one can obtain the necessary amount of data over a short period of time. It is a known fact that on Earth the plants orient themselves in the only possible way: Leaves towards the source of light, roots, under the influence of gravity, towards Earth.

Научная аппаратура «Система координатной привязки с использованием «умных полок»Dear visitors to the Korolev Planet web site,

I'm Oleg Kononenko, commander of the crew of Expedition Fifty Eight to the International Space Station, and I am going to tell you today about scientific equipment called the System for Locating Objects with the Use of Smart Shelves, which I have recently installed inside the Mini Research Module 1.
This piece of scientific equipment called SLO-SS (or just ‘smart shelves’) was developed within the framework of the Russian experiment Vizir, the principal investigator for which is RSC Energia.
This piece of equipment is intended for automatic identification and storage of medical drugs onboard the ISS RS with a very high degree of accuracy. It will enable the cosmonauts to quickly locate the required drug, as well as to get complete information about its administration, dose and shelf life.
There is a similar system on the US segment of the ISS, but thanks to know-how used by Russian specialists, the accuracy of scanning by Russian ‘smart shelves' is significantly higher, 99.8%.

In this video report we will talk about scientific equipment «ICARUS». Representatives of RSC Energia, Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences and cosmonauts will tell you about the appointment of this equipment, will show its constituent elements and equipment installation.
Space experiment Uragan is conducted on the ISS RS since the first manned expedition. (The Experimental Testing of an Earth-Space System for Monitoring and Predicting the Development of Natural and Man-Made Disasters.) The pilot of the experiment is RSC Energia. (A report on this experiment can be viewed from the link https://gagarin.energia.ru/media-arhiv/category/18-qq.html).
With the help of the equipment «ICARUS» included in this experiment, it is planned to work out the technology of global control from the space of migration routes for birds and animals. The aim is to determine the influence of various environmental factors on animals and birds. This technology will allow monitoring the ecological situation on the migration routes and preventing catastrophic phenomena on the planet.

Biomedical experiment Profilaktika-2. Research of various methods of physical exercises Dear visitors of the Korolev Planet portal!

Today I, Oleg Novitsky, a flight engineer of the ISS-50 prime crew, want to tell You about new biomedical experiment Profilaktika-2 which began during my expedition and I am the only performer of this experiment.

The experiment name Individual Strategy Test is aimed to study efficiency of various methods of physical exercises. To obtain comprehensive data on training efficiency all the time I am doing physical exercises on the Russian treadmill only. Today before dinner I perform the next (third) session of Profilaktika-2 experiment on the treadmill on which I am at this moment.

Уникальная биотехнологическая аппаратура «Главбокс-С»Dear visitors of Korolev Planet portal!

Today I, Andrei Borisenko, a flight engineer of the ISS-50 prime crew want to depart from the established tradition and tell You not about a new scientific experiment but about unique biotechnological hardware Glovebox-S which is used to carry out a number of biotechnological experiments.

Now I am in MRM1 module where Glovebox-S hardware is stored. In this module one can perform various complex manipulations with science hardware not interfering with other crewmembers.
Let us get closely acquainted with the hardware that is developed in Moscow in Russian company BioTechSys.

This hardware is designed to create a clean sterile space, hermetically isolated from the ISS space. In Glovebox-S (glove box) a special gateway device which is called Port is loaded with tools, equipment designed for conducting biotechnological experiments in aseptic conditions. For example, the bioreactor loading with unoculum (Kaskad SE) occurs in the glovebox.

Проведение биотехнологического эксперимента «Структура» в модуле СМA.Ovchinin:
Dear visitors of the Planeta Koroleva portal!
Today we, the International Space Station cosmonauts, Alexey Ovchinin and Олег Skripochka, will tell you about a new Earth remote sensing experiment Dubrava. The beginning of carrying out this experiment coincided with our arrival onboard the ISS RS. We are the first to participate in its implementation.

The purpose of the experiment realization is to develop the forests’ inventory methods, and methods of defining impacts of natural and technogenic factors and forestry activity on tree cover from the ISS board using visually instrumental and spectrometric monitoring. And it is no wonder that Dubrava Space Experiment is directed by the Moscow State Forestry University (MGUL).


Проведение биотехнологического эксперимента «Структура» в модуле СМDear visitors of the Planeta Koroleva portal!

Today i, the International Space Station cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, want to tell you about biological experiment onboard the Russian Segment of the International Space Station – the Regeneratsia-1 experiment.
The experiment is staged by the Institute of Biomedical Problems.
The regeneration word meaning results from the Latin words “re” - again, once more and “genus” - family, generation. Regeneration is a revival, renewal, restoration of what had been destroyed. Figuratively it means the turn for the better.
In engineering regeneration means restoration of initial composition and properties of worked-out products with help of certain physical and chemical processes for their reuse. Thus the air regeneration by means of removing from the air waste products of human organism, for example, carbon dioxide, got widespread occurrence in cosmonautics.
We will talk to you today about regeneration in biology. In each living organism throughout all his life there are constantly the restoration and renewal processes. For example, human’s epidermis is constantly renewing, new hair falls out and grows. The birds periodically moult off feathers and grow new ones, and the mammals change fur cover. Such regeneration which is not usually connected with damages or loss, is called physiological. The regeneration taking place after the damage or loss of some part of the body is called reparative. The research of this particular phenomenon is a purpose of the Regeneration-1 experiment realizing since 2014th. Research object in the experiment are Planaria and snails.
