The three Expedition crew members
aboard the International Space Station wrapped up the last full
work week of 2007 with science experiments and unloading and
stowing materials from a cargo craft that arrived early
The crew worked Friday on a number of biomedical experiments
that focus on the long-term effects the station's microgravity
environment on the human body. Flight Engineer Yuri Malenchenko
began the day winding up overnight operations of SONOCARD, a
Russian experiment which monitors crew physiological functions
Later Malenchenko participated in study of the cardiovascular
system under stress by working out on the VELO, one of two
bicycle-like exercise devices aboard the station, while biomedical
equipment collected data on his physical condition. Commander Peggy
Whitson assisted Malenchenko.
Whitson and Flight Engineer Dan Tani each took turns working out
with the CEVIS cycle ergometer while wearing a heart rate monitor
to collect data for their own periodic fitness evaluations.
The crew continues to unload and stow supplies that arrived
aboard the Progress 27 cargo craft on Wednesday.
The Progress docked to the space station's Pirs docking
compartment at 3:14 a.m. EST Wednesday after a launch at 2:12 a.m.
Sunday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
