EXP 10 STATUS - 9 FEBRUARY 2005



Submitted by Arthur N1ORC -Amsat A/C #31468

* Crew Deactivates Elektron, Participates in Medical Training*
The Expedition 10 crew tackled a workday filled with a number of tasks 
on Wednesday. The crew deactivated the Elektron oxygen generation system 
so the International Space Station can be supplied with oxygen from the 
ISS Progress 16 spacecraft. The Progress' oxygen supply will be depleted 
to prepare it for its upcoming deorbit. Progress 16, which will be 
filled with unneeded items, is slated to undock from the Station on Feb. 
27. Russian flight controllers will then command the unpiloted cargo 
ship to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere to harmlessly disintegrate.

Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov participated 
in standard emergency medical training. The 30-minute drill is used to 
refresh the crew's skills with medical equipment on the orbital outpost.

Inside the Quest Airlock, Chiao also inspected and cleaned prebreathe 
equipment for U.S. spacesuits and stowed equipment in preparation for 
the arrival of STS-114 in May.
