Crew Inspects Windows, Processes Water Samples
The Expedition Five crew had a full workload aboard the International
Space Station on Wednesday. Flight Engineer Peggy Whitson processed water
samples with the Total Organic Carbon Analyzer, which determines the
concentrations of carbon, organic carbon, inorganic carbon and
conductivity and the pH value in water. She also performed maintenance on
an atmosphere monitor.

Commander Valery Korzun and Flight Engineer Sergei Treschev inspected 12
windows in the Zvezda Service Module to check for chips, scratches and
contamination. Later in the day, they continued unloading cargo from the
Progress 8 spacecraft.

The three crewmembers will enjoy a day of light activity Thursday to
celebrate the Fourth of July holiday.

International Space Station Status Report No. 29

STS 107 Status Report-
Flow Liner Inspections Continue on Space Shuttle Columbia
At Kennedy Space Center, Fla., inspections of flow liners on Space
Shuttle Columbia's liquid hydrogen and oxygen lines will continue
throughout the week. So far, the inspectors have found one crack on a
liquid hydrogen flow liner in Columbia similar to the cracks found in
Atlantis and Discovery. Meanwhile, analyses of the issue will continue
around the United States.

The launch date for Columbia's next mission, STS-107, will be determined
after the analyses are complete. STS-107 is a 16-day mission devoted to
research and is the first flight of the SPACEHAB Double Research Module.
