* Crew Continues ISS Familiarization, Replaces Sensors in Elektron*
Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov are in their second full week as the resident crew of the 
International Space Station as they continue to familiarize themselves 
with their new home. For the first two weeks of a tour of duty on the 
ISS, each crewmember spends at least an hour a day getting to know the 
ISS and its systems.

Inside the Russian segment on Wednesday, they performed routine 
maintenance on the Elektron oxygen generation system. They replaced two 
sensors in the Elektron.

The duo also worked with science experiments, monitored ISS systems and 
performed their daily exercise regimen.

Tuesday marked the fourth anniversary 
of the Expedition 1 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/crew/exp1/index.html> crew's 
arrival at the International Space Station. Since then, nine more crews 
have maintained the permanent human habitation of the orbital outpost.

On the ground, Expedition 9 crewmembers Gennady Padalka and Mike Fincke 
are in Star City, Russia, for several weeks of post-flight debriefings 
and medical exams before returning to Houston on Nov. 13.
