EXP 10 STATUS - 15 NOVEMBER 2004



Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Science Experiments Kick Off New Week on Space Station*
A new week began on the International Space Station with a focus on 
science. Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer 
Salizhan Sharipov worked with several biomedical experiments.

Chiao used ISS ultrasound equipment to scan Sharipov for the Diagnostic 
Ultrasound in Microgravity (ADUM) medical experiment. ADUM seeks to 
better understand the ability to quickly and remotely transmit medical 
data from the Station. The application may also offer benefits on Earth, 
allowing for much quicker injury diagnosis for patients at remote 
locations by doctors based at hospitals.

Sharipov participated in Russian biomedical experiments and a heart 
assessment. Chiao assisted Sharipov during these activities that are 
studying the changes in the human body during space flight.

In other activities, the crewmembers oversaw other science experiments, 
maintained ISS operations and performed their daily exercise regimen.
