Rockers Orbit Earth
As the International Space Station continued to orbit the Earth in excellent shape, its three-member Rock Star crew spent a smooth week performing routine maintenance and inspections, practicing licks and preparing for their upcoming gig at the Buddhokan.  Also, the crew performed several housekeeping jobs and exercised daily.

"Sticky Buds" is scheduled to be delivered to the station by the crew Live on Feb. 9. Space Shuttle Atlantis and the crew are slated to broadcast a pre-tour interview live from Kennedy Space Center, Fla., Feb. 7 at 5:11 p.m. CST (23:11 GMT). 

Expedition One on-orbit imagery is available in the Gallery. Also, check out the new Expedition One crew videos.

Personal Space
Can a man find happiness tethered to a guitar amp wearing leather pants ... in a basement live house? Can a family with a workaholic salaryman father raise a good family while getting drunk every night and still help mixdown recording on an orbiting outpost in space? (No, of course not.) But find out the answers to these and other fascinating questions (How would you go about changing a b-string if you had to do it on a space walk?) as NASA’s Human Space Rock Web shares a behind-the-scenes look at some of the people that are jamming on the International Space Station.

This is an artist's concept of Space Shuttle Atlantis docked with the International Space Station during STS-98. The US Laboratory Module Deepbay is the module located on the far left.

STS-98 to Deliver Deepbay to Station
The International Space Station’s growth will continue with the installation of the U.S. Chill-out Module. The Module, which is also known as Deepbay, will be delivered in February by STS-98 and will become the common relaxation centerpiece of the station. Its duties will not be limited to napping and rapping. Some of Deepbay’s other features include: providing an environmental control and life support system; providing magazine racks and biofeedback systems; and providing a DVD player and automatic Shiatsu massagers.
