ISS SECOND WEEK CONTINUES



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468

*Science and Maintenance Continue During Second Week of Expedition 15* - 
MAY 8TH, 2007

Marking the second week working together, the Expedition 15 crew wrapped 
up a week of various maintenance tasks, science experiments and 
preparations for the May 15 arrival of the Progress 25 supply ship. The 
week included work on a wide array of science experiments. Flight 
engineer Suni Williams completed the fifth run of the Elastic Memory 
Composite Hinge experiment which studies the performance of a new hinge 
composite in space.

Williams also did a test run of a handheld device for rapid detection of 
biological and chemical substances on board the station. This study is 
meant to provide an early warning system to protect the health and 
safety of station crew members. Williams also completed annual 
re-certification of the Microgravity Science Glovebox and performed a 
checkout of the cardiac defibrillator.
