With the final STS-123 spacewalk complete, flight day 14 of the STS-123 mission will see the crew of space shuttle Endeavour prepare for the end of their visit to the station. The orbiter will undock Monday and return to Earth Wednesday.
Mission Specialists Robert L. Behnken and Mike Foreman completed the fifth spacewalk of STS-123 at 10:36 p.m. EDT Saturday. Rick Linnehan, also a mission specialist, coordinated their activities from inside the orbiting complex made up of space shuttle Endeavour and the International Space Station.
Richard Garriott, W5KWQ, will fly to the ISS in October 2008 as a spaceflight participant. He has received Russian training on the ARISS radio equipment and has posted an update covering this to his blog on his "Richard in Space" Web site (February 26 entries).
