Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Expedition 10 Rests Following Spacewalk*
Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov enjoyed a day off Thursday aboard the International Space 
Station. The well-deserved break comes the day after the successful 
completion of Expedition 10's first spacewalk 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/crew/exp10/eva/index.html>.

Wednesday's spacewalk lasted 5 hours and 28 minutes. While outside the 
Station, Chiao and Sharipov installed the Universal Work Platform, along 
with its base and associated wiring. They also installed a commercial 
robotics experiment and a biological experiment on the exterior of the 
Zvezda Service Module. In addition, they checked vents on systems that 
help control the Stationís atmosphere and relocated a Japanese physical 
science experiment.

It was the 57th spacewalk conducted at the Station and the 32nd to be 
based out of the orbital outpost. Expedition 10 is scheduled to conduct 
its second spacewalk in March.
