NASA scientists have installed two new instruments to help them measure the flow of fluid inside the International Space Station.
The instruments, known as the Hydrasat 1 and Hydrasato 1, will be deployed on the space station in the near future and will measure the composition of liquid and solid materials on the surface of the space shuttle.
Hydrasato is a new instrument that measures liquid and solids within the atmosphere, which is vital for astronauts who spend months in space.
NASA hopes the instruments will help scientists study the effects of the harsh conditions on the human body.
Hydraulic gauges will measure flow through the atmosphere.
These instruments are designed to measure the amount of pressure or pressure gradient across the atmosphere that is applied to a fluid object.
The sensors are installed on the side of the station, near the control room where scientists will monitor and analyze the data gathered from the instruments.NASA’s space station commander, Commander Jim Bridenstine, said in a statement that the instruments “are the latest addition to the HydraSat suite of instruments that will provide an unparalleled level of scientific capability to help us better understand the human experience on the International Station.”
The space station orbits the Earth at an altitude of more than 9,000 miles (14,000 kilometers).
The hydrasat instruments will be used for about four months before they are transferred to the International Orbital Test Facility (IOTF), which is located in the Atlantic Ocean.
