ISS LATEST 3 JANUARY 2007
The Expedition 14 crew members aboard the International Space Station are back at work this week after enjoying a quiet holiday weekend. They celebrated New Year's on orbit with a traditional dinner of rehydrated American food and Russian delicacies.
Station Commander Mike Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Suni Williams will primarily focus this week on the first phase of installing the new Oxygen Generation System. The complex procedure being performed by the crew this week will test the equipment to insure that it can support a full crew when the permanent complement aboard the station ultimately expands to six people.
