The objective of this experiment was to survey the effects of the space environment on the feelings, opinions, and the minds of astronauts. This experiment focused on the "sense of hearing." A crewmember listened to emitted sounds and documented the sensations they experienced.
In-flight the subject set up the "CHUON" kit and the HDTV. The CHUON kit consists of a copper bowl and wooden stick. The subjects closed their eyes, and while floating freely in the International Space Station (ISS), rubbed the rim of the CHUON copper bowl with the stick. The crewmember documented the sensations they experienced while listening to the sounds. A second crewmember, the operator, watched the free floating crewmember for safety purposes. Each of the crew members respond to questionnaires about how they feel the sound of object "CHUON". After each crewmember responds to the questionnaires, they had a conversation on what sensation the “CHUON” produced. During the experiment, all activities were recorded by an HDTV camera.
