Shuttle, Station Crews Hold News Conference



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468

The STS-121 and Expedition 13 crews took a break out of their workday 
this morning to hold the traditional joint news conference. The nine 
crew members fielded questions from media members located at NASA 
centers and the European Astronaut Center in Cologne, Germany.

STS-121 Commander Steve Lindsey said that the crews have had a full work 
schedule, but that they have been up to the challenge. “It has been 
very, very hectic,” Lindsey said, “but we have managed to keep up with 
the timeline to get all of the objectives accomplished.”

In other activities today, the crews continue to transfer cargo from 
Discovery and the Leonardo multi-purpose logistics module to the 
station. Leonardo is a reusable cargo carrier that was attached to the 
station on Friday. After its 7,400-plus pounds of cargo are unloaded, it 
will be refilled with unneeded station items before returning to 
Discovery’s payload bay for the trip home. Also, they are preparing for 
a second spacewalk, which is slated to kick off at 8:13 a.m. EDT Monday.
