* Expedition 10 Kicks Off New Week With Robot Arm Work*
After enjoying a quiet weekend aboard the International Space Station, 
the Expedition 10 crew began the new week with a full workload. 
Commander Leroy Chiao took the controls of the Robotic Workstation in 
the Destiny Laboratory Module 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/assembly/elements/uslab/index.html> 
for a training session with the Station's robot arm, Canadarm2 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/assembly/elements/mss/index.html>. 
During the session, he used the arm's camera to conduct an inspection of 
the outside of Destiny.

Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov performed routine maintenance on the 
Russian segment's Elektron oxygen generation system. Sharipov also 
performed routine maintenance on the ventilation system in the Zvezda 
Service Module 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/assembly/elements/sm/index.html>.

Both crewmembers monitored ISS science experiments and conducted their 
daily exercise regimen.

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.
