* 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 
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.
