STS-124 MCC Status Report #24 :: 4:00 a.m. CDT :: HOUSTON – The crew of Discovery will enjoy some off-duty time this morning after yesterday’s undocking from the International Space Station. After a few hours of rest, the crew members will stow the orbiter boom sensor system (OBSS) inside the shuttle’s payload bay as well as power down Discovery’s robotic arm. The crew will also conduct an orbit adjustment burn at 3:20 p.m. CDT using the right orbital maneuvering system (OMS) engine. That adjustment will change the shuttle’s orbit by seven feet per second and will enable an additional landing opportunity at the Kennedy Space Center on Sunday, if the shuttle is not able to land on the two opportunities on Saturday. The crew was awakened at 2:32 this morning to “Crystal Frontier” by Calexico. It was played for Commander Mark Kelly. The crew is scheduled to begin its sleep period at 6:02 p.m. The next status report will be issued at the end of the crew’s day, or earlier if events warrant.

STS-124 MCC Status Report #25 :: 5 p.m. CDT :: HOUSTON – The crew of Discovery enjoyed some off-duty time 12 days into a busy mission to the International Space Station and turned its attention to returning to Earth Saturday. After the rest period, robotic arm operators Karen Nyberg and Ron Garan stowed the orbiter boom sensor system inside the shuttle’s payload bay and powered down Discovery’s robotic arm. The boom was used to inspect Discovery’s heat shield Wednesday. A review of the space shuttle tile imagery has not revealed any issues and the team is continuing to review imagery of the reinforced carbon-carbon material. A final report from analysis of the data is expected Friday. The crew conducted an orbit adjustment burn at 3:20 p.m. using the right orbital maneuvering system engine. That adjustment enables an additional landing opportunity at the Kennedy Space Center on Sunday, if the shuttle is not able to land on the two opportunities on Saturday. Saturday opportunities at Kennedy are at 10:15 a.m. and 11:50 a.m. The crew is scheduled to begin its sleep period at 6:02 p.m. and awaken at 2:02 a.m. Friday. The next status report will be issued at the beginning of the crew’s day, or earlier if events warrant.
