ISS CREW SCIENCE REPORT



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT AC #31468


  	*Space Station Crew Marks Milestones in Two Laboratory Experiments*

New gear is helping the astronauts on the International Space Station 
kick off a new year. Flight Engineer Suni Williams set up hardware for 
the Test of Reaction and Adaptation Capabilities -- or TRAC -- 
investigation that is designed to test crew members' hand and eye 
coordination before, during and after missions. Crew members also 
completed the final operations of a biological experiment on the impact 
of varying levels of light and gravity on plant root growth. The final 
images of samples in the European Modular Cultivation System were taken 
and downlinked, and the samples were stowed in a freezer for eventual 
return to Earth.
