* ISS Crew Activates EarthKAM*
Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov kicked off February with the activation of an experiment that 
allows students on the ground to observe their planet from the 
International Space Station. The EarthKAM 
<http://www.nasa.gov/centers/marshall/news/background/facts/earthkam.html> 
(Earth Knowledge Acquired by Middle school students) experiment allows 
students to use the Internet to control a special digital camera mounted 
onboard the International Space Station, enabling them to photograph 
Earth's geographic features.

In other activities, the crew prepacked equipment that will return to 
Earth with STS-114. The crew also set up and began the first runs on a 
Russian/German materials science experiment.
