Petri-Plants into the LMM on orbit!

Steve Swanson prepares a plate for the LMM
At 0645 EDT Astronaut Steve Swanson began the process to install the CARA imaging plate into the Light Microscopy Module LMM. Formally this begins the imaging section of the CARA project, which is known as Petri Plants. Actually PetriPlants is also the OpNom (Operational Nomenclature) for the CARA experiment. The documentation and the calls back and forth from the ISS refer to PetriPlants for ease of identification.

The UF team is at Glenn Research Center where the LMM is controlled from the Telescience Support Center TSC.
