SpaceX’s CRS-24 Dragon cargo ship, which arrived at the International Space Station on December 22 with science materials and Christmas gifts for astronauts, skidded off the International Space Station after the previous day’s failure.
The spacecraft will return to Earth carrying a retired Light Microscopy Module (LMM) microscope and samples for studies on colloids and cell signaling in microgravity.
CRS-24 is scheduled to return to Earth on the afternoon of January 24 and dive off the coast of Florida.
The cells have been used to study human aging and the causes of muscle weakness with age.
Additionally, this research could support the development of countermeasures to help space crew members maintain optimal health on future missions.
