After enjoying a light-duty day on July 4, the Expedition 15 crew
members resumed work this week with science experiments and station
maintenance aboard the International Space Station.
Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin performed analysis on air samples collected
inside the orbiting complex on Tuesday to check the station's atmosphere
for microbial contamination.
Flight Engineer Clay Anderson worked with the European Modular
Cultivation System (EMCS), installing tubes on the water pumps for two
modules. The EMCS is combination centrifuge and growth chamber
experiment that studies methods of growing plants in space for future
long-duration missions to the moon or Mars.
In preparation for an upcoming spacewalk, Anderson completed recharging
the first set of spacesuit batteries and began recharging the second set.
Later Anderson took a break from his work and spoke with math and
science students at the Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences in Charleston.
