Cargo Transfers and Spacewalk Preps for Shuttle Crew

The combined crews of space shuttle Discovery and the International Space Station awoke at to the song “Java Jive” by Manhattan Transfer, played for shuttle Commander Steve Lindsey.

The crew will spend much of the day transferring supplies from Discovery to the space station and preparing for Monday’s spacewalk. They also will move the Orbiter Boom Sensor System from the side of Discovery’s cargo bay to the end of the shuttle robotic arm, clearing a pathway to transport the Permanent Multipurpose Module from Discovery to the station later in the mission.
