Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Spacewalk Preparations Continue on Space Station*
Preparations for Expedition 10's first spacewalk continued Wednesday
aboard the International Space Station.

Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov checked out
life support panels in the Pirs Docking Compartment and prepared
equipment they will use when they work outside the Station next week.
They also continued charging batteries for the Russian Orlan spacesuits
and checked out other Orlan equipment.

The 5.5-hour excursion is scheduled for Jan. 26, beginning about 1:25
a.m. CST (0725 GMT). It has been extended by one hour to give the
spacewalkers time to photograph some external elements of the Station.

In other activities Wednesday, the crew conducted routine air sampling
in the Station and exercised.
