ISS experiment equipment. View of the International Space Station (ISS) Experiment-8 (MIDDE-8) package. This experiment package is a test bed for materials and computing elements attached to the outside of the orbiting complex. These materials and computing elements are being evaluated for the effects of atomic oxygen, ultraviolet, direct sunlight, radiation, and extremes of heat and cold. This experiment allows the development and testing of new materials and computing elements that can better withstand the rigours of space environments. Photographed on 12th July 2011, during a spacewalk.
