With the previous Expedition crew now back on Earth, the Expedition 15 
crew begins a new week of science and maintenance aboard the 
International Space Station.

On Monday, Flight Engineer Suni Williams worked with the Capillary Flow 
Experiment (CFE) equipment and performed an experiment. CFE studies the 
interaction of liquids with solid surfaces in a microgravity environment.

Expedition 14 Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria, Flight Engineer Mikhail 
Tyurin and Spaceflight Participant Charles Simonyi landed safely in 
their Soyuz TMA-9 spacecraft in the steppes of Kazakhstan on Saturday at 
8:31 a.m. EDT.

Lopez-Alegria and Tyurin will now spend several weeks in Star City, near 
Moscow, for debriefing and medical examinations.
