NASA Flight Engineer Stephen Bowen labored within the Kibo laboratory module organising biology {hardware} that can home samples uncovered to synthetic gravity to doubtlessly deal with muscle and bone points on Earth and in area. Flight Engineer Woody Hoburg processed samples for a research exploring methods to provide new prescribed drugs in area and remoted areas on Earth. UAE (United Arab Emirates) Flight Engineer Sultan Alneyadi unpacked a brand new spacesuit, or Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU), contained in the recently-arrived Cargo Dragon area freighter.

Rubio checked on elements contained in the Fluid Science Laboratory situated within the Columbus laboratory module earlier than persevering with to unload a few of the 6,200 kilos of cargo packed contained in the Cargo Dragon.
