The Expedition 14 crew members are accelerating their preparations for 
three U.S. spacewalks with the first starting next week. They readied 
safety items and reviewed safety procedures such as aiding a crewmate 
incapacitated by decompression sickness. Commander Mike Lopez-Alegria 
and Flight Engineer Sunita Williams also reviewed updated spacewalk 
timelines and tagged up with ground specialists to address certain 
questions.

Williams also set aside some time to conduct a ham radio session with 
students at the École élémentaire publique Le Prélude in Ottawa, 
Ontario, Canada.
