Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Space Station Crew Makes Progress on Cargo Transfers*
Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov continued to unload cargo Wednesday from the Progress 16 
spacecraft to the International Space Station. The Progress and its more 
than 2.5 tons (2,268 kilograms) of cargo -- including propellant, 
oxygen, water, spare parts and experiment hardware -- arrived at the 
Station on Christmas Day. Progress 16 also delivered holiday presents 
and about a 112-day supply of food for the crew.

The crewmembers are using the Inventory Management System to keep track 
of the items transferred to the Space Station. In other cargo ship 
related activities, routine Progress thruster tests were conducted.

The crew performed maintenance on the Station exercise equipment. Chiao 
also filled out the weekly food questionnaire that allows experts on the 
ground to keep track of his nutritional intake on the Station.
