December 1, Fineko/abc.az. ISS astronauts study transportation robotics, physical and space biology.

ABC.AZ reports that 70 members of the expedition crew, who continued their research in the field of space biology, on Thursday, November 30, focused on research in the field of robotics and physics. The orbital station will also soon meet a cargo ship that was launched to the International Space Station on Friday morning.

On Thursday morning, NASA flight engineer Jasmine Mogbeli launched Astrobee robot flyers to demonstrate technology in the Kibo laboratory module.

She then installed components called clinkers on Astrobees and controlled cuboid robotic devices by performing docking maneuvers. The experiment aims to prove a new technology that will allow future satellites to meet, dock and disassemble autonomously.
