EXP 10 STATUS - 7 MARCH 2005

Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Cargo Transfers Kick Off Crew's Week*
Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov returned to work Monday after enjoying a weekend of light duty 
aboard the International Space Station. They resumed cargo transfers 
from the ISS Progress 17 spacecraft that delivered 4,631 pounds (2,100 
kilograms) of cargo to the Station last week.

The Progress carried food, supplies, fuel, oxygen, air and water to the 
Station. Its cargo also includes cameras and lenses that will be used to 
photograph the thermal protection tiles of Space Shuttle Discovery as 
the Return to Flight mission approaches the Station in May or June.

Chiao and Sharipov are keeping track of the transferred items with the 
Station Inventory Management System.

In other activities Monday, Chiao deployed devices to record noise 
levels on the Station. These measurements are taken at least twice 
during a crew's tour of duty on the Station. Also, both crewmembers 
monitored ISS science experiments and systems and exercised.
