* ISS Crew Completes Week Filled With Spacewalk Activities 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/spacenews/reports/issreports/2005/iss05-5.html>*
Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov concluded the last full week of January. The week featured the 
crew's first spacewalk 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/crew/exp10/eva/index.html> at the 
International Space Station

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.

Chiao and Sharipov will enjoy a quiet weekend aboard the International 
Space Station before returning to a full workload Monday.
