Any activity of which the purpose is to retrieve data and send it back to Mission Control.


Experiments will have specifically detailed procedures that will produce results (success or failure, as well as data.) These results should then be transmitted back to Mission Control.

Transmission of Results

The current astronaut on CAPCOM should announce that the experiment results are being sent. The INCO astronaut will then type the results through AUXCOM to ensure reliability of transfer. Mission Control will take down these results onto a safe file. A hard copy of the results is also preferable in case of system failure.
