The STS-120 and Expedition 16 crews are continuing cargo transfers and 
preparing for Thursday’s spacewalk. They took a break this morning to 
participate in the traditional joint crew news conference. They fielded 
questions from reporters in America, Italy and Russia.

The spacewalk preparations include preparing equipment and reviewing 
procedures. Mission Specialists Scott Parazynski and Doug Wheelock will 
conduct the excursion, which is slated to kick off at 4:58 a.m. EDT 
Thursday.

Early this morning Mission Specialist and European Space Agency 
astronaut Paolo Nespoli and STS-120 Commander Pam Melroy talked to 
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano. The astronauts took questions from 
the Italian leader while they were inside the Harmony node. The newly 
delivered Harmony was U.S. funded and Italian built.
