MISSE 7 Experiment Installation Complete

Final STS-129 spacewalk
Spacewalker Randy Bresnik completed installation of the MISSE 7 experiment on Express Logistics Carrier 2. This is the latest in a series of experiments that expose materials and composite samples to space for several months before they are returned for experts to analyze. This could lead to stronger spacecraft materials and applications on Earth. This MISSE experiment actually is plugged into the space station’s power supply.

Meanwhile, Mission Specialist Robert Satcher Jr. is preparing the Quest airlock for the installation of the high pressure gas tank, which is being moved to Quest by the station robotic arm.
