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.
