Astronaut Clay Anderson, an Iowa State aerospace engineering alum, has spent recent days working on the smoke and aerosol measurement experiment (SAME) hardware in the Destiny Lab of the International Space Station (ISS). The SAME is designed to help scientists improve smoke detectors that will be used on future spacecraft. Anderson and his Expedition 15 crewmates have also been loading items for disposal onto the Progress cargo spacecraft that will undock from the ISS on September 18 and burn up as it enters the Earth’s atmosphere.
