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.
