Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Expedition 10 Begins Week With Noise Readings, Spacewalk Preps*
Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov kicked off a new week aboard the International Space Station 
with a wide range of activities. They took routine sound measurements to 
record noise levels in various parts of the Station.

In preparation for their Jan. 26 spacewalk, the crewmembers installed 
software into ISS computers for an experiment they will attach to the 
outside of the Space Station. The experiment, called Rokviss, will test 
a prototype for manipulator hardware that could assist in future ISS 
assembly work.

Over the weekend, the crew transferred water from the Progress 16 
spacecraft to the Station and worked with the Elektron oxygen-generation 
system. The Elektron has been functioning well since Saturday.
