Station Crew Preps for Spacewalks, Conducts Science

ISS Status Report

The Expedition 18 crew readied for future spacewalks Friday as it wrapped up a busy week filled with science and preparations for the arrival of the next International Space Station crew.

Flight Engineer Sandy Magnus cleaned some debris from oxygen hose coupling devices in the Quest airlock. The hoses are used during campouts that help astronauts prepare their bodies for spacewalks.

Shuttle program managers have tentatively set March 12 as the launch date of space shuttle Discovery and the STS-119 mission. The STS-119 crew will conduct four spacewalks and install the final set of power-generating solar arrays on the station.
