ISS025-E-007248 (13 Oct. 2010) -- In the Tranquility node aboard the International Space Station, NASA astronaut Doug Wheelock, Expedition 25 commander, works to install the new Sabatier system that will extract more water out of the ISS atmosphere. Sabatier will create water from the byproducts of the station's Oxygen Generation System and Carbon Dioxide Removal Assembly. Under contract to NASA, Hamilton Sundstrand supplied the flight hardware and operational support for a Sabatier-reaction based system that operates as part of the station's Environmental Control and Life Support System.
