EXP 10 STATUS - 8 MARCH 2005

Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - Amsat A/C #31468

* Cargo Transfers Continue on Space Station*
At the International Space Station, Expedition 10 Commander Leroy Chiao 
and Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov continued to unload cargo 
delivered last week by the ISS Progress 17 spacecraft.

The Progress' 4,631 pounds (2,100 kilograms) of cargo included food, 
supplies, fuel, oxygen, air and water. It also delivered 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 Tuesday, Chiao registered data from devices he 
deployed Monday to record noise levels on the Station. These 
measurements are taken at least twice during a crew's tour of duty on 
the Station.
