Strange bike!
"It's a strange bike, but it goes at 28,540 km/h (my personal contribution is 40 km/h)!"

ESA's Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli is featured in this photo taken on 22 December 2010. Paolo is serving as a flight engineer with Cady Coleman, Dmitri Kondratyev, Oleg Skripochka, Alexander Kaleri and commander Scott Kelly.

Paolo’s MagISStra mission is Europe’s third long-duration mission on the ISS. He will land back to Earth in June 2010.

Cady Coleman inserting conductive gel to the EEG-capturing scalp of the Neurospat experiment. The Neurospat is a study of spatial cognition, novelty processing and sensorimotor integration, composed of two principal experimental tasks: visual orientation and visuomotor tracking, plus additional, standardized electroencephalogram (EEG) tasks performed as a means of assessing general effects of the space station environment on EEG signals.
