The space shuttle and International Space Station crews will turn their focus to the third and final spacewalk of the mission today. Inside the complex, transfer and maintenance continue.
Mission Specialist Jose Hernandez will assist crewmates Danny Olivas and Christer Fuglesang as they prepare for their second spacewalk together. Their extravehicular activity will include outfitting and maintenance of station modules.
The two will deploy a payload attachment system on the starboard truss. They will have a special tool with them in the event they encounter any problems with a detent pin that caused problems on similar tasks in previous missions.
