Caption: ISS astroculture. Astronaut's hand pointing to soybean (Glycine max) plant shoots growing in the Advanced Astroculture (ADVASC) experiment aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The ADVSAC experiments are partly automated. The Expedition Five crew installed this one in the Discovery module, allowed it to operate for around 70 days under monitoring by Earth-based scientists, and prepared it for return. The experiment researched plant growth in reduced gravity. The ISS is a joint effort by several national space agencies, including NASA. It orbits Earth at an altitude of 350 kilometres and it is still being constructed. Photographed on 10 July 2002.
