Further steps

We will continue to work on the analysis software. This will be the main work until the installation and commissioning of MarconISSta. Besides this, the installation procedures are still under review in collaboration with ESA, ARISS and BioTESC (operation center for MarconISSta). A simulation of the installation will be performed in calendar week 12 at the ESA astronaut center (EAC) in cologne.
