Robotic Activities Dominate Crew's Timeline Today
Tue, 21 Jul 2009 05:14:56 -0500

The crew was awakened at 6:03 a.m. EDT to the sounds of “Life Is a Highway,” performed by Rascal Flatts and played for Tom Marshburn, who completed his first spacewalk Monday.

Robotic activities dominate the crew’s timeline today as the shuttle and space station robotic arms power up to move the Japanese Exposed Section from Endeavour’s payload bay to the end of the Japanese Exposed Facility. Then the station arm will move the Integrated Cargo Carrier – Vertical Light Deployable, or ICC-VLD, from its location on the mobile transporter to an overnight park position. Later it will be moved to the Port 6 solar array area for spacewalkers to access spare batteries on Wednesday.

Endeavour Commander Mark Polansky and his crew members will answer questions from Twitter and YouTube before enjoying some off duty time.
