Station Crew Back to Business

The space station’s newest member, Flight Engineer Clayton Anderson, is 
busy at work with his Expedition 15 crewmates Commander Fyodor 
Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Oleg Kotov. Anderson replaced Suni 
Williams who returned home Friday, June 22, aboard space shuttle 
Atlantis after a 195-day stay in space.

Williams stayed in space longer than any woman before her. She and her 
shuttle crewmates returned to Houston the day after Atlantis landed at 
Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.

Meanwhile, science and maintenance continue aboard the International 
Space Station. Anderson has been taking blood and urine samples to study 
nutritional countermeasures to the effects of microgravity. Yurchikhin 
and Kotov have been working on a communications system in the Zvezda 
service module and reconfiguring a toilet in the docked Soyuz vehicle 
among other tasks.
