Expedition 7 Commander Yuri Malenchenko and NASA ISS Science Officer Ed
Lu completed their eighth workweek Friday aboard the International Space
Station with science and cargo transfer operations. Lu conducted a run
of the Investigating the Structure of Paramagnetic Aggregates from
Colloidal Emulsions, or InSPACE, experiment. InSPACE is a fluid
materials experiment studying how very small individual particles that
are magnetizable respond to a magnetic field that is repeatedly turned
on and off. The experiment run was performed in the Station's
Microgravity Science Glovebox.
Meanwhile, Commander Yuri Malenchenko loaded the Progress 10 cargo ship
with items that are no longer needed on the ISS. Progress 10 has been at
the Station since February and will remain until October when it will be
commanded to undock and burn up in Earth's atmosphere.
Earlier in the week, they replaced parts on the Station's Resistive
Exercise Device and participated in U.S. and Russian medical tests.
Also, Lu tested the Human Research Facility's ultrasound equipment and
Malenchenko replaced a cooling pump in the Zarya Module's cooling
