Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin continued work setting up a laptop 
computer designed to command satellite navigation aids for the 
rendezvous of the Automated Transfer Vehicle, the European unpiloted 
cargo craft, later this year.

The crew conducted periodic emergency fire drill training and Flight 
Engineer Sunita Williams began practicing Rendezvous Pitch Maneuver 
photography.

Flight controllers loaded new software into a data relay box for the P3 
Solar Alpha Rotary Joint (SARJ) on Tuesday. An initial attempt Monday 
was not successful. All P3 SARJ-related systems are operating normally 
with new, improved software.

On Feb. 27, the International Space Station Independent Safety Task 
Force issued its final report. It was released simultaneously to 
Congress, NASA and the public.
