Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Oleg Kotov continued to
monitor the upload of new software into the Russian segment computers.
Meanwhile Flight Engineer Clay Anderson helped them stow items no longer
needed on the station in the ISS Progress 24 cargo craft. The Progress
craft is scheduled to undock on Aug. 1.
Kotov and Anderson each completed mandatory computer-based Crew Medical
Officer proficiency training. The training session is done once a month.
Late Friday, Anderson delayed his sleep period to handle a file-server
crash. Flight controllers and Anderson worked hard for several hours to
repair the Station Support Computer File Server. The server was reloaded
with Expedition 15 software and all functions were restored with no
impact to station operations.
Anderson also set up and activated the EarthKAM hardware for a new
session. The camera is at the Lab science window and takes pictures by
remote operation from the ground, without crew interaction. EarthKAM is
an education program that enables thousands of students to photograph
Earth from space. The student requests are uplinked to a laptop, which
then activates the camera at specified times and receives the digital
images from the camera for subsequent downlink.
