*Expedition 9 Makes Progress in Cargo Transfer
*The Expedition 9 crewmembers continued to transfer cargo Wednesday from 
the ISS Progress 14 spacecraft to the International Space Station. The 
Progress delivered 2.5 tons of food, fuel and equipment to Commander 
Gennady Padalka and NASA ISS Science Officer Mike Fincke on May 27.

Padalka and Fincke are scheduled to turn their attention to spacewalk 
preparations on Thursday. They will work with their Russian Orlan 
spacesuits and the Pirs Docking Compartment. The objective of the June 
15 extravehicular activity is to replace the failed Remote Power 
Controller Module (RPCM) on the S0 Truss. The RPCM is responsible for 
the temporary loss of Control Moment Gyroscope No. 2 in April. The 
gyroscope is one of four that control the ISS' orientation.
