EXP 10 STATUS - 14 FEBRUARY 2005



Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Crew Checks Out Exercise Equipment*
After an off-duty day Sunday, the Expedition 10 crewmembers -- Commander 
Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov -- got to work Monday 
performing scientific experiments and routine maintenance. Their primary 
activity was the semiannual maintenance and checkout of the treadmill.

Also on Monday, Sharipov prepared the hardware for a Russian biomedical 
experiment. Chiao talked via amateur radio with students at Rockland 
District High School in Rockland, Maine.

Chiao and Sharipov worked most of the day Saturday on the International 
Space Station's toilet, which failed Friday. They replaced several 
components and restored it to full operation. While it was out of order, 
the crew used the toilet in the docked Soyuz spacecraft.

A reboost of the Station is planned for 6:22 P.M. CST Tuesday (0022 GMT 
Wednesday). Flight controllers will send the commands to raise the 
Station's orbit while the crew sleeps.
