Crews Speak With German Chancellor About New Lab :: As space shuttle Atlantis and the International Space Station sail above Earth today, the crews are enjoying some off-duty time after Wednesday’s busy spacewalk. Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany, talked to shuttle and station astronauts today congratulating them on the successful installation of Columbus, the station’s newest laboratory from Europe. Hans Schlegel, a German astronaut with the European Space Agency, helped activate Columbus and participated in today’s conference. The astronauts also will prepare for Friday’s spacewalk, slated to begin at 8:35 a.m. Mission Specialists Rex Walheim and Stanley Love will spend tonight in the station’s Quest airlock. The purpose of this “camp out” is to purge the nitrogen from their bodies before they exit the station. On this third and final STS-122 excursion, Walheim and Love will install two payloads on Columbus’ exterior: SOLAR, an observatory to monitor the sun; and the European Technology Exposure Facility that will carry nine experiments requiring exposure to the space environment.

Spacewalkers "Camp Out" in Airlock :: The crew of space shuttle Atlantis began preparing Thursday for the third and final spacewalk of the mission. As part of the preparation, Mission Specialists Rex Walheim and Stanley Love are spending Thursday night in the International Space Station’s Quest airlock. The purpose of the “camp out” is to purge the nitrogen from their bodies before their planned exit at 8:40 a.m. EST Friday. During the spacewalk, Walheim and Love will install two payloads on Columbus’ exterior: SOLAR, an observatory to monitor the sun; and the European Technology Exposure Facility that will carry nine experiments requiring exposure to the space environment. The STS-122 and Expedition 16 crews also spent time Thursday outfitting racks and systems inside the European Space Agency’s Columbus laboratory, preparing the module for the scientific work ahead of it. Thursday morning, STS-122 Commander Steve Frick, Mission Specialists Hans Schlegel and Daniel Tani, station Commander Peggy Whitson and Flight Engineers Yuri Malenchenko and Leopold Eyharts spoke with Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany. Schlegel, a European Space Agency astronaut, is from Germany. Also participating were ESA Director General Jean-Jacques Dordain and former astronaut Thomas Reiter of the German Space Agency. Atlantis is slated to land at Kennedy Space Center, Fla., Wednesday.
