NASA highlights climate research on cargo launch, sets TV coverage

WASHINGTON, June 3, 2022 / PRNewswire / – NASA and SpaceX have goals 10:22 EDT FridayJune 10 to launch the agency’s next inquiry to monitor climate change for the International Space Station. Flying aboard SpaceX’s 25th Commercial Return Service Mission to the Orbital Laboratory is NASA’s Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation (GIVE).

SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft will take off from Launch Complex 39A at the agency Kennedy Space Center in Florida to supply new scientific studies, supplies and equipment to the international crew, including a new climate research study.

Live broadcast will be broadcast on NASA Television NASA appand the agency websitewith launch events starting Thursday, June 9.

The Dragon will carry more than 4,500 pounds of cargo, including a variety of NASA surveys as EMIT, which will identify the composition of mineral dust from the Earth’s arid areas and analyze dust transported through the atmosphere from deserts to see what effects it has on the planet, further promoting NASA’s data contribution to monitoring climate change.

Other surveys include studying the aging of immune cells and the potential to reverse these effects during post-flight recovery, a study of how sutured wounds heal in microgravity, and a student experiment testing a concrete alternative for potential use in future lunar and Martian habitats.

Arrival at the station is scheduled for 06.20 SundayJune 12. Dragon will dock autonomously to the forward-facing port of the station Harmony modulewith NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren and Bob Hines monitor operations from the station.

The spacecraft is expected to spend about a month attached to the orbiting outpost before returning to Earth with research and return cargo, which splashes down off the coast Florida.
