Expedition 9 Commander Gennady Padalka and NASA ISS Science Officer Mike 
Fincke continued to transfer cargo Wednesday from the ISS Progress 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/assembly/elements/progress/index.html> 
15 spacecraft to the International Space Station. They are using the 
Inventory Management System to keep track of items unloaded from the 
Progress.

Padalka and Fincke prepared for Thursday's work with the Station's 
robotic arm, Canadarm2 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/assembly/elements/mss/index.html>. 
They reviewed software they will use while moving the arm into its 
viewing position for their Sept. 3 spacewalk.

In other activities, Padalka participated in a Russian cardiovascular 
experiment and inspected a Russian plant experiment. Fincke inspected 
the Station's life support system. Both crewmembers took part in a 
routine on-orbit hearing assessment.
