STS-113 Astronauts to Transfer Cargo, Prepare for Spacewalk
The STS-113 crewmembers will transfer cargo and prepare for the second of
three spacewalks.
They will transfer supplies and equipment from Space Shuttle Endeavour to
the International Space Station that will be used by the Expedition Six
crew. They will also load cargo, including completed experiments, into
Endeavour for the return to Earth.

Later today, they will prepare for the mission's second spacewalk, which
is slated to begin at 1:20 p.m. CST (1920 GMT) Thursday. Mission
Specialists Michael Lopez-Alegria and John Herrington will perform the
Thanksgiving Day extravehicular activity to continue the activation and
outfitting of the station's newly installed P1 (P-One) Truss. Pilot Paul
Lockhart will coordinate the spacewalk activities, and Commander Jim
Wetherbee will be at the controls of Endeavour's robot arm.

In other activities today, the Expedition Five and Six crews will
continue handover discussions and training
