Aboard the International Space Station, the Expedition 14 crew members
continue their work with scientific experiments, station maintenance and
additional clean up following the Feb. 22 spacewalk.
Flight Engineer Suni Williams participated in robotics proficiency
training with a computer-based simulation Wednesday. This training
program maintains the crew's skill level in using Canadarm2 without
actually moving the robotic arm.
Also on Wednesday, Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin spent some time
relocating hardware as part of his post-spacewalk clean-up tasks.
On Tuesday, the International Space Station Independent Safety Task
Force issued its final report. It was released simultaneously to
Congress, NASA and the public.
The Congressionally-mandated task force was chartered last year under
Section 1281 of the NASA Authorization Act of 2005. The task force was
charged with reviewing the International Space Station program to assess
potential vulnerabilities that could threaten the station or its crew or
lead to it being prematurely abandoned.
