SSAF2013 Space Experiment Report No. 5: Final observation

Last Updated: September 9, 2013

On September 6th, 2013 at 01:21 the final observation started. To see how different they are from the seedlings grew in the ground, astronaut Karen Nyberg took still and video images from various angles. To estimate the physical strength, seedlings were taken out and tested by dragging, swinging, and bending.

The observation in space is only a part of the SSAF2013 program. Observations made by students on the ground are essential to the full success. Please compare the results from space and what you observe on the ground. If you find any difference, think about how did it occur and set up your hypothesis. Then make plan of further experiment to verify your hypothesis. Please show your idea of next space experiments, if you think it necessary. Write your report and submit it to the organization sponsoring your SSAF2013 program, or directly to JAXA following the Submission rules.〔PDF:10KB〕
