* Expedition 9 Continues Elektron Repairs, Participates in Science 
The Expedition 9 crew began the new workweek Monday with a wide range of 
activities aboard the International Space Station. The crew resumed work 
on the Russian Elektron oxygen generation system. Even with the Elektron 
offline, the ISS has an adequate oxygen supply.

On the science front, Commander Gennady Padalka and NASA ISS Science 
Officer Mike Fincke participated in a Russian biomedical experiment. 
They recorded calf and body mass measurements for the experiment that is 
studying changes in the human body during space travel. Fincke also 
performed a session with a psychological experiment.

The two crewmembers worked on several ISS systems. Padalka checked out 
the Russian segment's water system and installed new parts for an 
intercom system in the Zvezda Service Module. Fincke performed routine 
maintenance on a ventilation system.
