Expedition 7 Crew

The International Space Station Expedition 7 crew of Commander Yuri
Malenchenko and NASA Science Officer Ed Lu began their third month aboard
the Station this week, wrapping up a week that included a personal milestone
and continued experiment work.

Lu, who considers Honolulu, Hawaii, one of his hometowns, celebrated his
40th birthday aboard the Station on Tuesday, a milestone that was marked by
the observance of "Edward Tsang Lu Day" in Hawaii. Hawaii Governor Linda
Lingle read a proclamation of the observance to Lu on Monday. Lu's birthday
also was marked by an "Aloha Day" celebration in Mission Control and
throughout NASA with ground team members donning Hawaiian garb and shirts
such as those Lu has frequently worn in orbit. NASA Administrator Sean
O'Keefe took part in the celebration with a congratulatory call to Lu
marking the occasion.

Lu completed work this week with the InSPACE experiment in the Destiny
Laboratory's Microgravity Science Glovebox. Lu conducted runs of the
experiment, which studies the behavior of magnetic particles in a fluid when
subjected to a pulsed magnetic field, almost daily during the week. InSPACE
stands for Investigating the Structure of Paramagnetic Aggregates from
Colloidal Emulsions.

Other activities during the week included standard maintenance inspections
of Russian systems, windows, and the Pirs Docking Compartment's docking
cone. The Expedition 7 crew took time out of its activities on Monday to
field questions from educators gathered in Seattle, Washington, for launch
of the NASA Explorer Schools program. The program includes teams of
educators from 50 schools who will work with NASA to bring the excitement of
space exploration and science into the classroom. Friday, July 4, will be a
holiday for the crew. Light activities interspersed with time off also are
planned for Saturday and Sunday.

Information on the crew's activities aboard the Space Station, future launch
dates, as well as Station sighting opportunities from anywhere on the Earth,
is available on the Internet at:


Details on Station science operations can be found on an Internet site
administered by the Payload Operations Center at NASA's Marshall Space
Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., at:


The next ISS status report will be issued on Friday, July 11, or earlier, if
events warrant.
