* ISS Crew Works With Science Experiments*
The Expedition 10 crew focussed on science experiments and medical 
activities Tuesday aboard the International Space Station.

Commander Leroy Chiao conducted another session with the Binary Colloid 
Alloy Test 3, which is studying the long-term behavior of colloids -- 
fine particles suspended in a fluid -- in a microgravity environment, 
where the effects of sedimentation and convection are removed. 
Crewmembers will even out the samples, photograph the growth and 
formations of the colloids, and downlink the images for analysis. 
Meanwhile, Flight Engineer Alexander Sharipov participated in a Russian 
experiment that is studying the heart at rest.

Both crewmembers took part in routine medical assessments and recorded 
the data.

In other activities, the crew monitored ISS systems and continued 
troubleshooting on a Russian navigation system.
