RelatedThe supplies taken by Dragon for research include a cellular biology investigation that will help to understand how microgravity affects the growth, gene expression and the ability of a model bacterium to transfer electrons through its cell membrane along the bacterial nanowires it produces. Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer experiment will provide a new space-based measurement thus investigating to the responses that plants show towards the changes in water availability. This will provide with environmental betterment and for managing agricultural water use. Along with the hundreds of pounds carried to space, contains a spare Canadian-built Latching End Effector (LEE) that will be used as the “hands” to grapple payloads while visiting cargo spaceships. It enables Canadarm2 to walk on the orbiting outpost. This is the 15th Cargo flight to the space station under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services contract. Dragon is scheduled to land back on Earth with more than 3,800 pounds of research, hardware and crew supplies resulting in research breakthroughs and robotic exploration into deep space.
