EXP 10 STATUS - 9 DECEMBER 2004



Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Crew Participates in Biomedical Studies, Supports ARIS Work*
Thursday was filled with biomedical science work and maintenance aboard 
the International Space Station on Thursday. The Expedition 10 crew 
began the day with a Russian biomedical assessment, followed by a U.S. 
assessment. Both protocols are studying the effects of space flight on 
the human body's blood.

Later, Commander Leroy Chiao continued to support the checkout of the 
Active Rack Isolation System (ARIS) hardware. ARIS is a device designed 
to protect experiments from being affected by vibrations on the Station. 
Chiao also checked out airflow between the Station's U.S. and Russian 
segments.

Meanwhile, Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov installed new cables for 
the Russian onboard equipment control system.
