The Expedition 15 crew members continue to work on science, station 
maintenance and preparations for Thursday's relocation of their Soyuz 
spacecraft.

Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin spent Wednesday morning working with 
PLASMA-ISS, a Russian experiment that measures the plasma environment on 
the exterior of the International Space Station.

Yurchikhin later joined with Flight Engineer Oleg Kotov to close the 
hatches between the Progress cargo craft and the Pirs docking compartment.

Also on Wednesday, Flight Engineer Clay Anderson talked by ham radio 
with students at Art and Pat Goforth Elementary School in League City, 
Texas.

The crew is set for Thursday's relocation of the Soyuz TMA-10 
spacecraft. With Kotov at the controls, the Soyuz will move to the aft 
port of the Zvezda service module, freeing up the Zarya nadir, or 
Earth-facing, port for the arrival of Expedition 16 on Oct. 12.

NASA TV coverage of the Soyuz move begins at 3 p.m. EDT. Undocking 
occurs about 3:18 p.m.
