EXP 10 STATUS - 3 JANUARY 2005



Submitted by Arthur N1ORC- Amsat A/C #31468

* Station Crew Begins New Year With Maintenance Work*
Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov enjoyed a long weekend of light duty to kick off the new year 
aboard the International Space Station. With the exception of a few 
daily tasks and maintenance, Chiao and Sharipov had some well deserved 
time off Saturday and Sunday.

Monday, the crew spent a few hours trying to troubleshoot gas bubbles in 
the plumbing of the Elektron oxygen-generation system, which shut down 
Saturday morning. Two initial efforts to flush the bubbles out of the 
lines were unsuccessful.

They will return to a full work schedule on Tuesday, including 
additional troubleshooting of the Elektron and resumption of scientific 
experiments.
