On February 20, a week from tomorrow will be NASA's Northrop Grumman 15th Commercial Resupply Services Mission Launch. According to NASA:

QuoteExperiments using worms to study muscle weakening, examining how astronauts sleep, and testing high-powered computers in space will be launching, along with more scientific experiments and supplies, to the International Space Station on a Northrop Grumman Cygnus spacecraft. This Cygnus is named the S.S. Katherine Johnson, after the NASA mathematician whose calculations were critical to the success of our early human spaceflight missions.

There is a 2-minute video on YouTube that shows you that some of the experiments here.
