* Station Crew Performs Maintenance on Spacesuit*
After enjoying the weekend, Expedition 9 Commander Gennady Padalka and 
NASA ISS Science Officer Mike Fincke returned to work Monday with a full 
workload. Fincke resumed troubleshooting efforts on the U.S. spacesuits 
that have experienced cooling problems. He installed a new rotor pump 
into one of the suits. The pump was delivered to the Station earlier 
this month by the ISS Progress 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/assembly/elements/progress/index.html> 
15 spacecraft. Fincke will continue troubleshooting efforts Tuesday. 
Fincke also replaced equipment on the Station's Resistive Exercise Device.

Padalka took photos of the Zvezda Service Module's aft-end docking 
assembly used for Progress 15's arrival. This a standard procedure that 
is performed to better understand docking conditions. Padalka also 
inspected a Russian plant experiment.

Both crewmembers continued to transfer cargo from the Progress and 
document new items in the Inventory Management System.
