* Expedition 9 Performs Science Experiments*
After a short break for Labor Day, Expedition 9 Commander Gennady 
Padalka and NASA ISS Science Officer Mike Fincke are once again hard at 
work on the International Space Station. This week they are working on 
an array of scientific experiments and wrapping up their post-spacewalk 
activities from last week.

Padalka set up and ran a preliminary test of the Advanced Diagnostic 
Ultrasound in Microgravity experiment Tuesday in preparation for an 
actual run scheduled for Thursday. Fincke worked with flight controllers 
on the ground to set up the hardware for an experiment in EXPRESS Rack 5.

The crewmembers stowed the remaining items from their recent successful 
spacewalk and discussed the event during a debriefing with spacewalk 
specialists on the ground.

Other activities aboard the Station on Tuesday included routine exercise 
and hardware maintenance.
