The Expedition 15 crew has been busy unloading items from the ISS 
Progress 25 cargo craft, which docked at the International Space Station 
on Tuesday. The craft delivered more than 2.5 tons of fuel, air, water 
and other supplies and equipment to the orbital outpost.

On Thursday, Flight Engineer Suni Williams took a break from unloading 
cargo to build a special tool for the STS-117 crew of Space Shuttle 
Atlantis, set to arrive in June. Atlantis' spacewalkers can use this 
tool to assist in folding the solar array blankets while the remaining 
P6 solar wing is being retracted.

Williams, along with Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer 
Oleg Kotov, delivered a special message on Sunday from the space station 
to Jamestown, Va., as part of the Jamestown Anniversary Weekend. NASA 
Administrator Mike Griffin introduced the space explorers to a crowd 
that included President George Bush and Virginia Governor Tim Kaine.
