After months aboard the International Space Station, NASA’s SpaceX Crew-7 is returning to Earth. NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli and Roscosmos cosmonaut

ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen processes blood samples for theinvestigation, which monitors the impact of spaceflight on immune function. Prior to the experiment, scientists could only test the immune function before and after flight. Taking samples while on station provides scientists a clearer assessment of changes to the immune system during spaceflight.

, a device that mimics forces generated when lifting free weights on Earth. The experiment assesses the current exercise programs on station to understand the most effective countermeasures to maintain muscle and bone demonstration, which tests a special membrane to eliminate contaminants from wastewater. The membrane incorporates proteins called aquaporins, found in biological cells, and may be able to filter water using less energy.

, a technology demonstration used to monitor microbes in water samples aboard a spacecraft. Future exploration missions will need to analyze water to ensure it is safe for crews to drink while far from Earth.Tomato seedlings sprout in the space station’s Advanced Plant Habitat. At the beginning of Crew-7’s mission,wrapped up a months-long experiment that tests whether epigenetics are passed to subsequent generations.

investigation from JAXA seeks to understand how cells can do this. JAXA astronaut Satoshi Furukawa uses a microscope to examine cells during spaceflight and document cell responses to microgravity. Understanding the mechanisms of cell gravity sensing could contribute to new drug development.NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli works in the BioFabrication Facility , which bioprints organ-like tissues in microgravity. During the Crew-7 mission,tested bioprinting and processing cardiac tissue samples.
