The Expedition 15 crew members aboard the International Space Station 
worked Tuesday on station maintenance and gathering items for disposal 
on a Progress cargo craft.

Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Oleg Kotov stowed some 
unneeded hardware in the docked ISS Progress 25 cargo craft. Flight 
Engineer Clay Anderson gathered trash for disposal in the Progress as 
well. The Progress will undock from the station Sept. 18 and burn up in 
the Earth's atmosphere.

Anderson also serviced a European Space Agency plant growth experiment 
in the European Modular Cultivation System. The experiment will grow 
Arabidopsis thaliana, a small flowering plant related to cabbage and 
mustard, in orbit for three generations.

Anderson took a break from his work Tuesday to conduct a ham radio 
session with students at the King Academy in Mount Clemens, Mich.
