EXP 11 STATUS - 27 APRIL 2005

Submitted by Arthur N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468

*Expedition 11 Gets to Work*

Expedition 11 is back on the job after several days of light duty. On 
Sunday, the previous resident crew – Expedition 10 – exited the 
International Space Station and departed in a Soyuz spacecraft for a 
landing in Kazakhstan. Expedition 11 Commander Sergei Krikalev and NASA 
ISS Science Officer and Flight Engineer John Phillips will live and work 
on the Station until October.

In preparation for STS-114, the Shuttle’s Return to Flight, Phillips 
worked on a hatch inside the Unity Node. The hatch will be opened when 
Space Shuttle Discovery delivers the Raffaello Multi-Purpose Logistics 
Module for cargo transfers. Krikalev worked on a Russian water supply 
system and checked out computers. Both crewmembers exercised, continued 
their ISS familiarization tasks and set aside time for relaxation as 
they adjust to their new home in space.
