Medical Science for Crew as Year Nears End


www.nasa.gov said:

The six-member Expedition 38 crew is getting ready for another eventful year of scientific research, finishing up 2013 with medical research activities. Both NASA and Russian spacewalkers also are cleaning up after three fast-paced spacewalks.

With one exception, all station systems are powered up and running normally following two spacewalks by NASA astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Mike Hopkins to replace a degraded cooling system pump module.

Eye Exams, Health Checks for Station Crew


www.nasa.gov said:

Following a light-duty day to ring in the New Year, the International Space Station’s Expedition 38 crew supported biomedical research Thursday, with a special focus on ocular health.

Flight Engineer Mike Hopkins began his day with a periodic fitness evaluation as he worked out on the station’s exercise bike – the Cycle Ergometer with Vibration Isolation and Stabilization – while Flight Engineer Koichi Wakata measured Hopkins’ blood pressure.
