Submitted by Arthuir N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* EarthKAM Operations Continue on Space Station*
Work continued Thursday aboard the International Space Station with an 
experiment that allows students to get an orbital view of Earth. The 
experiment, called EarthKAM 
<http://www.nasa.gov/centers/marshall/news/background/facts/earthkam.html> 
(Earth Knowledge Acquired by Middle school students), enables thousands 
of students to photograph and examine Earth from a space crew's 
perspective. Using the Internet, the students control a special digital 
camera mounted onboard the Station.

In other activities, the Expedition crew continued runs with a 
Russian/German materials science experiment and navigation software 
upgrades.
