ISS Daily Summary Report – 6/09/2017

Rodent Research-5 (RR-5) Systemic Therapy of NELL-1 for Osteoporosis:  Two crewmembers performed the first injection of the RR-5 mice in the Microgravity Science Glovebox (MSG).  Spaceflight has significant and rapid effects on the musculoskeletal system, therefore, it is important to investigate targeted therapies that could ameliorate some of the detrimental effects of spaceflight. The NELL-1 drug being studied in the RR-5 investigation has the potential to slow or reverse bone loss during spaceflight.

Japanese Experiment Module (JEM) Camera Robot:  The crew set up the JEM Camera Robot and installed a target marker on the JEM Airlock Inner Hatch.  This device is a free-flying camera robot that provides real time video downlink and photographs. It is expected to reduce the crew time requirements to support video recording of activities, especially at the blind spot of existing JEM internal cameras. 

Mobile Servicing System (MSS) Operations in support of MUSES: Yesterday and overnight, Robotics Ground Controllers maneuvered the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) and Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) to unstow the Multiple User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES) payload from the SPDM Enhanced Orbital Replacement Unit (ORU) Temporary Platform (EOTP) and install it on Express Logistic Carrier 4 (ELC4) Site 2.  Teams at Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) subsequently activated the MUSES payload successfully.
