The Expedition 15 crew members are continuing their work with science 
experiments and station maintenance aboard the International Space Station.

Flight Engineer Clay Anderson rearranged and consolidated frozen 
biological samples in the Minus Eighty Degree Laboratory Freezer for ISS 
to conserve space and make room for future samples. He also spent some 
time gathering hardware and prepacking items for return on space shuttle 
Endeavour in August.

Meanwhile cosmonaut Oleg Kotov, flight engineer, continued to perform 
extensive troubleshooting of computers in the Russian segment of the 
station.

The crew also conducted preparations for the next spacewalk. Anderson 
recharged the first set of spacesuit batteries, and then he and 
Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin reconfigured their spacesuits.
