New Station Crew Launching Wednesday Night

The six-person Expedition 37 crew aboard the orbiting International Space Station supported a variety of research activities Wednesday, reviewed plans for an upcoming spacewalk and prepared for Thursday’s express arrival of three new Expedition 38 colleagues.

Flight Engineer Mike Hopkins spent much of his morning participating in the Body Measures experiment, which collects anthropometric data to help researchers understand the magnitude and variability of the changes to body measurements during spaceflight. Predicting these changes will maximize crew performance, prevent injury and reduce time spent altering or adjusting suits and workstations to accommodate anthropometrics. Flight Engineer Karen Nyberg assisted Hopkins throughout the experiment session, setting up the calibration tape, collecting data and taking photographs.
