Nasa Space to Ground ISS Update Video

NASA's Space to Ground is your weekly update on what's happening aboard the International Space Station.

In this video the Soyuz launch and successful arrival of new ISS crew members and the ESA Minus Eighty-Degree Laboratory Freezer, (MELFI) used to freeze experiment samples.

The ESA Minus Eighty-Degree Laboratory Freezer (MELFI) is seen here in ESA, undergoing tests on the ground, prior to launch and installation in ISS

MELFI is not used for food storage, as you may imagine, because food storage and retrieval is a more complex and power hungry issue on the ISS, a space vessel with limited resources.
