On 28 July 2005 at 11:18 UTC the Space Shuttle mission STS-114 Orbiter docked and delivered a replacement Control Moment Gyroscope as part of the approximately 4.100 kg cargo carried inside the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module (MPLM) called Raffaello. On 6 August 2005 the Orbiter undocked from the ISS taking the MPLM back.
During the Expedition 11 mission, Russian Commander Sergei Krikalev exceeded the record for total time in space (formerly held by Sergei Avdeyev with 747.593 days). Krikalev at launch had spent 624.387 days in space. He passed the record on the 123rd day of the mission, on 16 August 2005. His cumulative time in space was 803 days and 9 hours and 39 minutes upon landing.
On 7 September 2005 the unpiloted Progress spacecraft 53 (P18) undocked from the station and was deorbited, to make way for the arrival of Progress 54 (P19) which docked in September 2008 and transferred around 2300 kg of cargo, (fuel, water, and dry cargo including oxygen generators) to the station.
On 18 August 2005 19:02 UTC (3:02 p.m. EDT) the crew started a 4-hour, 58-minute spacewalk. They removed and brought inside the station a Russian Biorisk experiment container housing bacteria from the outside of Pirs; an MPAC (a micrometeoroid and orbital debris collector) and SEED (a materials exposure array) panel from the Zvezda Service Module; and the Matroska experiment, (radiation dosimeters in human-tissue-equivalent material). They installed a television camera on Zvezda, and checked a Korma contamination-exposure experiment tablet, and removed and replaced a materials exposure experiment container.
