ISS STATUS REPORT - EXP 5



Submitted by Arthur - N1ORC

Robot Arm 'Walks off' Lab, Attaches to MBS
Wednesday, the Expedition Five crewmembers prepared for their next set of
visitors by working with the International Space Station's robot arm.
They commanded the arm to "walk off" the U.S. Destiny Laboratory Module
and attach itself to the Mobile Base System, or MBS. Both ends of the arm
are now attached to the MBS. The "walkoff" maneuver was important for the
installation of the S1 Truss, which will occur during STS-112's visit to
the station. Before the maneuver was completed, the crew also performed a
dry run of the S1's installation onto the starboard end of the S0
(S-Zero) Truss.

In other activities Wednesday, Flight Engineer Peggy Whitson activated
the Microgravity Science Glovebox for use with the SUBSA experiment --
Solidification Using a Baffle in Sealed Ampoules. Also, crewmembers
continued participation in NASA's kidney stone prevention experiment.

International Space Station Status Report No. 30.
