    Internal spacewalk in a depressurized Zvezda module to reconfigure it. The spacesuited crew entered the forward transfer comparment of Zvezda and closed the hatches to Zarya and to the aft compartments of Zvezda. The transfer compartment was then depressurized at 06:22 GMT. Then a flat cover on the zenith hatch was removed and stowed on top of the Pirs hatch, leaving the port open to space. The no-longer-required docking cone on the port leading to Zarya was removed installed on the zenith port, preparing it for arrival of the new MIM-2 research/docking module later in the year.
