These are the handwritten scientific notes of the Russian experimentation on the Space Acceleration Measurement unit (SAMS) during the fall 1994. These three sheets of paper contain five pages of scientific notes on the operation of the SAMS experiment on board the Russian space station Mir in 1994. The notes are recorded by hand and begin on 28 September 1994 at 20:45 (GMT?) and conclude on 28 October 1994 at 21:00. The notes reflect a thorough scientific method in which the time and procedures of turning on the machine and making the initial selection from the menu are recorded in detail so as to assure that subsequent results are reproducible. The notes record the measurements taken by instruments in the units over a course of one month. On several occasions throughout the notes, questions about the performance of the unit are written into the text. The notes conclude with the detail of powering down the machine and turning it off.
NASA transferred this document to the museum after the Shuttle-Mir missions.
