E-learning sessions broadcasted from the ISS
An e-learning session was scheduled as an "Earth-based" lecture during which a live link-up was made with ESA astronaut Thomas Reiter on the International Space Station. The lecture was presented to European university students following the EuMAS Masters Programme in Aeronautics and Space by Dr. Hubertus Thomas of the Max-Planck-Institute in Garching, Germany. The lecture was about plasma crystals and complex plasmas, with reference to the PK-3+ plasma crystal experiment that was performed during Astrolab. Thomas demonstrated the PK-3+ hardware and the students put questions to Thomas Reiter.
