Interesting. Hopefully this will lead to more robust designed electronics for use on earth and in space.

How the result of this experiment will be used?...to build more robust electronic components for space application?

Since human beings survive extended stays in the Space Station, I'm not surprised that ruggedized electronics can do so. Nevertheless, it is nice to have an opportunity to evaluate the components on their return. Obviously the shuttle vehicles also provided an opportunity to evaluate their components after multiple trips into space.
