The Expedition 70 crew wrapped up the work week with microbiology, bioprinting, and ultrasound scans aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Cardiac research and fluid physics also rounded out the microgravity science schedule for the orbital septet.

Uncontrolled microbial growth is a potential threat to spacecraft possibly contaminating and corroding systems and affecting the health of space crews. Researchers are exploring how to identify and disinfect microbes to protect spacecraft and crews traveling longer and farther away from Earth.

NASA Flight Engineers Jasmin Moghbeli and Loral O’Hara partnered together and researched ways to control microbial growth inside the Kibo laboratory module. The duo took turns treating bacteria samples in Kibo’s Life Science Glovebox helping scientists learn how to promote successful long-term spaceflights and protect extreme environments on Earth.

Moghbeli also assisted Commander Andreas Mogensen of ESA (European Space Agency) as he removed tissue cassettes containing cardiac cells from the BioFabrication Facility. The 3D bioprinter is demonstrating the potential to manufacture human organs in space from existing patient cells. The samples are then stowed in an advanced sample processor for incubation allowing the tissues to cohesively form on a cellular level. Mogensen earlier studied water recovery and purification techniques under microgravity conditions.

O’Hara began her day conducting ultrasound scans and collecting blood pressure measurements with Flight Engineer Satoshi Furukawa from JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency). The biomedical work was done in conjunction with doctors on the ground and is part of the CIPHER suite of 14 human research experiments. Afterward, Furukawa swapped cargo in and out of the SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft as it counts down to undocking from the station later this month and returning to important research samples to Earth.

Working in the Roscosmos segment of the orbiting lab, three cosmonauts began their morning conducting cardiac research. The trio of flight engineers, Oleg Kononenko, Nikolai Chub, and Konstantin Borisov, participated in the study that measures the bioelectrical activity of the heart as it rests in weightlessness. Afterward, the cosmonauts each participated in a computerized test solving problems for a study exploring how crews and mission controllers can communicate better.

Kononenko later examined eggs in an incubator for a space biology study then checked ventilation systems in the Nauka science module. Chub moved on and investigated how magnetic and electrical fields affect fluid systems in microgravity. Finally, Borisov worked on a variety of science tasks throughout the day including watering and photographing plants and configuring an array of research hardware.

    Hello, I am translating a text for you.It will be edited and spelled by Google, but you will probably understand the general theme of the text.I can solve this problem, but it will take time.If you want, send a short message to my mobile number.I will solve the problem.Islamic Republic of Iran may have blocked my email or the problem is from somewhere else.I created an email ten times, none of them work.Please send me your opinion.The dictatorial regime of the Islamic Republic has blocked and filtered most of the political and religious sites.If you think it is appropriate, post some of my comments on religious, political and scientific sites and say that Mehrdad, the author of political, religious and scientific issues from Iran, sent them to special scientific sites in Iran.cultural and so on…which are prominent and popular in the world, we do not have access to them.Thanks to you and the managers and officials of countries abroad, Mehrdad, I am the author of political, religious, scientific, cultural and social materials.Gods of other countries, please help me.From a religious point of view, you should know that the Gods of the earth are the supreme power.It is possible that they are neither spirits nor bodies.I have not yet discovered the exact nature of the Gods of the earth.I, God, formed the names of some prophets with clouds for me and depicted the figure of great prophets with clouds the size of a small city and performed other miracles that I will explain to anyone who wants and I do not consider it permissible to domore than this in a comment.Let me explain that these issues are related to the supernatural, but just know that I will never lie in this regard, God is your protector, wait in most things and don’t rush in most things, especially in judging Mehrdad, the master oftime, with dozens of signs on the ground in history My birth and the number of words, verses and surahs that have been revealed to me, I am attached to time and the owner of time, but I am not the imam of time and aprophet.I am the first person in Iran to talk about the nature of the gods of the earth.In the past few decades, I asked the clergy about the structure and nature of God himself.They said that God, God, is not a visible Lord, and He has not appeared to anyone, and no one can see Him.And no God has ever spoken directly to His prophets.I was seventeen years old at that time.I did not accept it.God cannot speak directly to prophets, but now that I am in contact with the Gods of Iran, I accept this 100%.I was forty-two years old at that time.Before, I had read books on constellations, galaxies, stars in the sky, and the planets of the solar system, and I had read the book Astrophysics and the Structure of the Atom written by Albert Einstein.Those books were the first books I had read when someone had information about astronomy and the general information of his thoughts.It opens up about the knowledge of the world around him and religious and belief issues.I remember that after I had read the book that I mentioned completely, I was arguing with my older brother who was religious.I said that there is no God.I said to my brother, I read in the holy books that the father of the son of the Holy Spirit himself said to his prophet, “We breathed on you from our own spirit that you became aware of the secrets of the unseen world and itsknowledge.”I said, therefore, it is the soul itself.The soul burns in millions of temperatures.etc. It is possible that a being could have created the sun.My brother said that Iranian Shia Islamic taqlid authorities said that the sun itself is neither a soul nor a body

    My older brother, who was religious, told me that God does not exist.I do not accept the creation of the stars.And its knowledge became known.I said, therefore, there is a soul itself.The soul burns in millions of temperatures.etc. It is possible that a human existence created the sun.My brother said that Iran’s Shia Islamic taqlid is neither a soul nor a body.I said, “Then what is the nature of the self?”In all holy books, God has always used the word we and the plural verb, not the singular verb, which is I, so God is not one.How can I accept the words of Islamic mullahs, mullahs and clerics, they say that God is one and has no partners.Our word is not a plural verb?I asked most of the clerics this question, but they couldn’t give me a convincing answer.We Iranians have a proverb, they say that the seeker is the finder.The meaning of the finder is that a person thinks about something a lot.May God bless that person with inspiration..And the revelation is revealed to that human being.I prove that God thought, I realized the nature of God when I saw my soul and the great souls of the prophets of my people, Hazrat Z Forohar, Jesus Christ, and Muhammad, the Messenger of God.The Sasanian year of the Cyrus dynasty was 2570 and it was 2010 Jesus Christ and I saw the Arab lunar year 1432, in four scenes most of the prophets of the world appeared to me after 13 years when they appeared in a white cream curtain.The Gods of the Earth became, after 13 years, I realized that my Prophet, the Gods of the Earth appeared to me in the beginning, they were not there, the meaning is that they cannot gather their real soul at the same time in theveil that becomes their soul.In different places of the world, their corpses were buried thousands of kilometers in the ground, once I see the souls of the prophets in a curtain.This means that whatever a person thinks about, God makes the truth according to the example of God.Thirteen years have passed since God sent four prophets to me.Apparently, they must have been the prophets of my generation, the last prophet of Jesus Christ.I accept him, but after thinking about it Since those 13 years that I revealed to those scenes of the appearance of the prophets, now I understand that the Lord of the earth who showed me the images of those dear prophets continues.I will talk about the author of political issues, astronomy and religions of Iran, Mehrdad, the constitution from the point of view of God and the nature of the gods of the earth, the second chapter, the introduction, the continuation of a part ofthe author’s life and the illegitimacy of the constitution in the constitution of the Islamic Republic.In this chapter, I will talk about the constitution of the last text in the chapter First, I said that I spent thirteen years since the spirit of the prophets appeared to me, and I understood that all the spirits of the prophets who live in differentparts of the world, may tell me at one time after collecting them that God understands them.do I showed that this issue is very important so that no one will see this issue that I raise and I have not experienced this issue, I will accept this issue anyway, the Gods of the earth will choose to send themselves to that person.They appear, I know for a fact that God chose me, that those Gods were raised by humans a hundred million years ago, that’s why he says to God, the Lord, I call us that structure.

    We call that structure P.R.V.R.D.G.A.R.p.r.v. a.r.d.g.a.r.parvardegar I have fully explained this in the comments I made on the scitechdaily daily science and technology website, I have made dozens of comments about the nature and structure of Gods.You exist and you must appear.What does emergence mean?Emergence means publishing and publishing the truths and orders of God, which must be implemented.Those orders are the property of the people and nations that are in trouble.When crimes are committed in an oppressive government or an oppressive religious government, then God’s The earth always has a choice at the promised time, that is, when it recognizes the crimes committed by a religious government, then God will reveal himself to the main chosenpeople to execute justice, of course, this is because the extremist Islamists created a problem for The appearance of the prophets who want to appear and follow the orders of their Lord are severely criticized by clerics such as the extreme Salamists who are in Iran.They never allow a prophet to appear because they rule by the Islamic religion.God appears in a people and a nation, he informs about the events that are going to happen in the future, the gods of the earth send down their orders to his elect through inspiration and revelation, and he informs about the future.His God’s revelation assigns him his duty, unfortunately, this heavy duty has been assigned to me, but I do not claim to be the Imam of the time and I do not like to be the source of sorrow on earth, because the prophet must alwaysfight against a religious government, rather than the oppressive religious government that Those people were not on God’s side, they should be overthrown or leave power, like the leaders of the Islamic Republic who are not Iranians and are Arabs, who were not the real representativesof the people, like the Iranian Shia Islamists who rode on the people’s necks, God sends his chosen ones instead of those who are in the work of the people’s gods.And the nation of Iran interfered, destroy the people and get rid of them like the leaders of Iran’s mullahs and mullahs who are oppressing and oppressing the Iranian nation and they interfered in all the affairs of the Iranian state.They took the country of Iran after the revolution and put the issue of imamate in the Islamic religion, and in the constitution of the Islamic Republic, the issue of imamate means that in the absence of the twelfth imam of the Shiites of Iran, one ofthe taqlid authorities of the Shiite Muslims should be the successor of the Imam of the time.He should lead the Shiite people and the Muslims.The religion of Islam that this task is currently assigned by the Islamic Council after the death of Imam Khomeini to another authority of Iranian Shia imitation and that person is the successor of the Imam of the time Hazrat Mahdi Aj, who is currently Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khameneiin Iran and the leader of the Islamic Republic.LT is

    The mistake was due to the misleading of the Iranian people by Imam Khomeini’s speech in Behesht Zahra in Tehran in 1358, when Imam Khomeini said that water and electricity should be free, and the promises that Imam Khomeini made to the people on behalf of the representativeof the clerical community.None of them worked.They didn’t, the people were deceived and everyone voted for the clerics who made it to the parliament, even in Iran and the world where the President of the United States Jimmy Cartel in 1979 and 190 after the fall of the Shah and the revolutionof Iran was worth 150 million dollars to Imam Jimmy Cartel.America and its allies must remove the dictatorial and criminal regime of the Islamic Republic from Iran and the Constitution of Iran must interpret that this is a ridiculous issue.You have made Imamate the Ayatollahs of Iran and the leader of Iran, the principles of the Islamic religion and in the clauses of the Constitution of Iran.to give The Ayatollahs of Iran should be removed from the Imamate and this should be done by the great powers of the world.Nothing can be done by the Iranian nation.President George should be killed and martyred when young people and girls are protesting the mandatory hijab on the streets of Iran.became In his speeches, George should say that we know that Iranian teenagers were killed because of the mandatory hijab on the street.In Iran, we support the freedom-loving girls and boys of Iran and defend their rights, and they should continue to demonstrate in the streets of Iranian cities.George should have said those words in his last speech against the mandatory hijab.I am asking the respected administrator of this site to deliver my message to the American government because we Iranians have access to most political sites due to the blocking of sites by the Islamic Republic’s dieting.We don’t have it, the dictator regime of Iran has taken away our freedom from us Iranians, thank you administrators of the constitutional political and religious website, the religion of Islam is illegitimate, that is, constitutionally, I mean that the Islamic Republiccannot be divorced from Islam in any way.The republic has nothing in common with the Islamic religion, in the constitution of Iran, the hands of the extreme clerical Islamists of Iran’s Shiites and all the powers of the parliament are in the hands of the clerics, and the ayatollahs of Iran in the Houseof Leadership and the Assembly of Experts are the leaders of all the candidates who are accepted by the clerics.And if that person is disqualified from the dress and class of the mullah, that means he does not accept that person to elect the president, the president is like the Majlis, America and France in Iran, but in Iran a certain class of Islamic clericshas power..They have this situation and this calamity and problem brought by the leaders of the Ayatollahs of Iran, but they were opened by the Imam who got into the parliament, if France and their allies, who are the superpowers of the world, do not support ImamKhomeini to Iran, the people of Iran and their faith They didn’t have all this misfortune and there were no wars and conflicts?!Mehrdad, author, researcher and analyst of political and religious issues and author of the religious and ritual book, The Words of the Gods of Iran and the Chosen Lords.Greetings.I can solve it, but I am time-consuming, if you want, send a text message to my mobile number so that I can solve the problem.My email may have been blocked by the Islamic Republic of Iran or the problem may be from somewhere else.I have sent an email ten times, but nothing.Does not work

    Be sure to send me your opinion.The dictatorial regime of the Islamic Republic has blocked and filtered most of the political and religious sites.If you think it is appropriate, post some of my comments on religious, political and scientific sites and say that Mehrdad, the author of political, religious and scientific issues from Iran, sent them to special scientific sites in Iran.cultural and so on…which are prominent and popular in the world, we do not have access to them.Thanks to you and the managers and officials of countries abroad, Mehrdad, I am the author of political, religious, scientific, cultural and social materials.Gods of other countries, please help me.From a religious point of view, you should know that the Gods of the earth are the supreme power.It is possible that they are neither spirits nor bodies.I have not yet discovered the exact nature of the Gods of the earth.I, God, formed the names of some prophets with clouds for me and depicted the figure of great prophets with clouds the size of a small city and performed other miracles that I will explain to anyone who wants and I do not consider it permissible to domore than this in a comment.Let me explain that these issues are related to the supernatural, but just know that I will never lie in this regard, God is your protector, wait in most things and don’t rush in most things, especially in judging Mehrdad Sahib Zaman by dozensof signs on the ground
