Roman Romanenko and his cool purple shirt on the ISS. In the first photo he’s working with the Electronic Nose hardware in the Zvezda service module, which is used to measure contamination in the event of a chemical leak or spill. And in the second, he’s working with a big mess of cables, otherwise known as the communications systems in the Zvezda service module.
