SummaryThe SPHERES ISS test session 54 occurred on January 22nd 2014, operated by Michael S Hopkins and Richard A. Mastracchio. The test session had 3 major parts. First, inertia values were determined about the principal axes of the SPHERES-Slosh Experiment. Next, the performance of the 24 thrusters on the SPHERES-Slosh system given thruster plume impingement were tested and characterized. Finally, translation, rotation, and pitch open-loop maneuvers were performed to provide benchmarking data for the behavior of fluids in a microgravity environment.
