* New Workweek Begins Aboard the International Space Station*
Science experiments garnered the attention of Expedition 10 Commander 
Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov on Monday as they 
began a new workweek aboard the International Space Station. Beginning 
before breakfast, the crewmembers worked with biomedical experiments, 
including a Russian experiment studying changes in the human body during 
space flight. For this investigation, they recorded their body mass and 
calf measurements.

In preparation for this week's Active Rack Isolation System activities, 
Chiao supported a ground-commanded power-up of Express Rack 3 by 
activating the rack's laptop computer for an initial checkout. 
Meanwhile, Sharipov installed and activated a new Russian spectrometer 
instrument in the DC1 docking compartment as a test for science 
activities planned for next year.

In other activities, the crewmembers reconfigured computers on the 
Station and took routine water samples. They also conducted their daily 
exercise regimen and maintained ISS systems.
