Commander Mike Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Suni Williams Wednesday 
did a televised interactive talk with the U.S. Embassies in Madrid, 
Spain, and New Delhi, India. Lopez-Alegria, born in Spain, spoke with 
U.S. Ambassador Eduardo Aquirre, media and school children. Williams, of 
Indian background, spoke with U.S. Ambassador David C. Mulford and 
Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian in space.

Also on Wednesday, Lopez-Alegria and Williams performed a mandatory 
emergency medical on-board training drill. This is an exercise designed 
to refresh crew membersí skills in applying advanced cardio life support 
in an emergency. Lopez-Alegria and Williams performed steps to resolve a 
simulated medical emergency. The objectives of the exercise include 
practicing communication and coordination necessary to perform medical 
emergency procedures, locating appropriate emergency medical components 
and determining each crew memberís individual method of delivering 
cardio-pulmonary resuscitation in zero-gravity.
