Final countdown : ready for the next ELITE S2 session on board the ISS


January, 14th 2013 – Everything is ready to support the next ELITE-S2 session at the Kayser Italia Support Center in Livorno (I). Two body movement analysis investigations sponsored  by the Italian Space Agency (ASI) will be executed tomorrow by the International Space Station commander Kevin Ford. They will be monitored on ground by different groups of scientists and engineers located in Rome, Milan and Livorno. Ford arrived on board of the station on October 2012 and since then he successfully executed two other sessions with ELITE-S2. The tomorrow session will be the last while on board the station, but Kevin Ford will continue to support the scientific investigation when he will return on the earth on March 2013.
