EXP 10 STATUS - 6 JANUARY 2005



Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Expedition 10 Operates Robot Arm; Elektron Working*
Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov completed a work schedule filled with a wide range of activities.

Efforts to troubleshoot the Elektron oxygen-generation system appear to 
be successful. The Elektron, which stopped operating on New Year's Day, 
was reactivated Thursday morning and was operating late Thursday 
afternoon on a backup pump, after being restarted a second time.

Later in the day, Chiao took the controls at the Robotics Work Station 
to move the Station robotic arm, Canadarm2, into position for an 
upcoming spacewalk. Flight controllers will use the camera on the arm to 
view Chiao and Sharipov during the Jan. 26 excursion.

Chiao also completed U.S. cargo transfers from the ISS Progress 16 cargo 
ship to the Station.
