The Expedition 14 crew members continue science, maintenance and 
exercise activities as they prepare to greet their replacement crew  
Expedition 15.

Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Suni Williams are 
pursuing final investigations with the NUTRITION experiment. They will 
take blood and urine samples, process them in a centrifuge and store 
them in a freezer. Williams is also exercising heavily for the upcoming 
Boston Marathon which she will run in space.

Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin continues his maintenance duties in the 
Russian segment of the International Space Station.

Expedition 15 launches from the Baikonur Cosmodrome Saturday at 1:31 
p.m. EDT. They will dock at the station Monday about 3:12 p.m. in their 
Soyuz spacecraft.
