Astronaut has started work

German Flight engineer Alexander Gerst and Commander Steve Swanson, they ready to hold the grapple Cygnus on Wednesday at 6:39 a.m.EDT. On Monday morning Swanson started to do work on Advanced Colloids Experiment, for that he opened the Fluids Integrated Rack. Fluids Integrated Rack (FIR) is designed to host investigations in areas such as wetting, gels, colloids and capillary action, including cooling and boiling. For study the behavior of microscopic particles in creams and gels, there is a experiment called Advanced Colloids Experiment-Microscopy-1 (ACE-M-1).

With the help of Reid Wiseman (NASA astronaut), Gerst work in the Kibo laboratory module because of set up sensors to measure airflow in the Japanese lab. Wiseman removed all the samples and swapped desiccant packs in a science freezer. In the Destiny laboratory’s Microgravity Science Glovebox, Reid Wiseman set up the Burning and Suppression of Solids experiment called combustion experiment.
