The Expedition 15 crew members conducted a mandatory emergency exit 
drill Tuesday to simulate their response to a rapid depressurization of 
the station. Russian and U.S. specialists were standing by at both 
control centers for questions and comments. During the drill, the group 
proceeded through a series of checkpoints, determining and verifying 
various settings, measurements and configurations. They stepped through 
the process of preparing the ISS Progress 24 cargo ship for undocking 
and moved along the emergency exit path toward the docked Soyuz TMA-10 

Flight Engineer Clay Anderson conducted his first seven-day Sleep-Wake 
Actigraphy and Light Exposure during Spaceflight experiment session by 
completing a questionnaire.

Anderson also completed his first session with a cognitive assessment 
experiment by performing a psychological evaluation exercise. The 
exercise is a timed questionnaire test of cognitive abilities routinely 
performed by astronauts onboard the station.

The crew also continued to monitor the loading of new software into the 
Russian segment system computers.
