STS-114 STATUS - 5 AUGUST 2005



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468

The STS-114 crew returned the Raffaello Multi-Purpose Logistics Module 
to Space Shuttle Discovery's payload bay this morning at 9:03 a.m. EDT. 
The hatches between Raffaello and the International Space Station were 
closed at 1:42 a.m. EDT.

Raffaello is filled with unneeded items from the Station. This is 
Raffaello’s third trip to the international outpost.

In other activities today, the STS-114 and Expedition 11 crews are 
preparing for Discovery’s departure. The Shuttle is scheduled to undock 
from the Station at 3:24 a.m. EDT Saturday and land at Kennedy Space 
Center, Fla., Monday morning.

The two crews are slated to go to bed today at 2:09 p.m. EDT.

Mission Control radioed the Space Shuttle Discovery astronauts Thursday 
with news that they will not need to make a fourth spacewalk to fix a 
thermal blanket near the commander's left window. The Mission Management 
Team made the decision based on extensive analysis.
