* ISS Crew Unloads Progress*
Tuesday aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 10 Commander 
Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov unloaded cargo from 
the Progress 16 spacecraft that arrived Christmas Day. The Progress 
delivered more than 2.5 tons (2,268 kilograms) of cargo, including 
propellant, oxygen and air to help maintain the Station's atmosphere, 
water, spare parts and experiment hardware. It also delivered holiday 
presents and about a 112-day supply of food for the crew. Sharipov also 
continued to integrate Progress into ISS systems on Tuesday.

In other activities, Chiao conducted a routine audit of emergency 
equipment aboard the Space Station. He also inspected smoke detectors in 
the Station's U.S. segment.

Sharipov recharged batteries in a satellite phone located in the ISS 
Soyuz 9 spacecraft, which will serve as the crew return vehicle.
