Expedtion Six Returns Home 
The Expedition Six crew returned to Houston, Texas, on Wednesday.
Commander Ken Bowersox, Flight Engineer Nikolai Budarin and NASA ISS
Science Officer Don Pettit will continue physical rehabilitation and
debriefings. They had been in Star City, Russia, since their 161-day
mission ended on May 3. 

Aboard the International Space Station, the Expedition Seven crew --
Commander Yuri Malenchenko and NASA ISS Science Officer Ed Lu --
participated in a hearing assessment test. Lu also took sound level
readings at 41 locations throughout the orbital outpost. 

In other activities, Lu performed another run with the Investigating the
Structure of Paramagnetic Aggregates from Colloidal Emulsions, or
InSPACE, experiment. This session was performed in the station's
Microgravity Science Glovebox. InSPACE is a physical science experiment
that is studying how particles respond to an external magnetic field. 

Malenchenko cleaned the components of the Russian ventilation system and
performed a test on a carbon dioxide removal system.
