Science, Maintenance and Cargo Transfers for Crew
Science continues onboard the ISS as the Expedition 7 crewmembers
photographed selected targets on Earth. The Crew Earth Observation
images can be viewed at http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov and
http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov. Other experiments under way include
the Investigating the Structure of Paramagnetic Aggregates from
Colloidal Emulsions experiment, or InSpace and a Russian plant
Maintenance activities kept Commander Yuri Malenchenko and NASA ISS
Science Officer Ed Lu busy. Malenchenko performed his daily check of the
Zvezda Service Module's environmental control and life support system.
Lu prepared exercise data recorded from workout equipment for downlink
to Earth. Also, Lu rebooted the station's portable computer system, a
weekly task on the ISS.
Ongoing cargo transfers proceed as Malenchenko and Lu unpack gear from
the Progress spacecraft docked to the Pirs Docking Compartment since
June 11. The crew unloaded water, clothes, office supplies, replacement
parts and experiment gear. Also, fuel will be pumped from the Progress
to the Zvezda's tanks.
