Submitted by Arthur - N1ORC

Crew Starts Week With U.S., Russian Science Activities
Expedition 8 Commander Michael Foale and Flight Engineer Alexander 
Kaleri kicked off the new week by working with U.S. and Russian science 
operations. Foale continued work with the Cellular Biotechnology Support 
System Fluid Dynamics Investigation (CBOSS-FDI). CBOSS-FDI is growing 3D 
cells for research.

Both crewmembers prepared for upcoming runs of the Russian Miscible 
Fluids in Microgravity experiments, which will study the interaction of 
fluids that completely dissolve in water. These investigations will use 
water and honey.

In other activities, Kaleri removed unneeded instruments from the motion 
control system in the Zarya Control Module. Foale and Kaleri also 
performed their daily exercise routine and monitored ISS systems.
