ISS STATUS - 24 AUGUST 2005



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468

The Expedition 11 crewmembers successfully conducted emergency response 
training Wednesday, simulating a quick depressurization of the Station's 
crew quarters. This week they continue to conduct experiments, maintain 
International Space Station systems and stow supplies recently delivered 
by Space Shuttle Discovery.

Commander Sergei Krikalev and Flight Engineer John Phillips are also 
wrapping up their post-spacewalk activities this week, stowing 
equipment, cleaning spacesuits and reconfiguring the Pirs docking 
compartment's airlock.

The Vozdukh carbon dioxide (CO2) removal system is back in service. 
Krikalev replaced a faulty vacuum valve in the component and brought it 
back online Tuesday. A U.S. system was used for CO2 removal while the 
Vozdukh was offline, and carbon dioxide levels onboard the Station 
remained well below the levels that would pose any danger.
