Endeavour and Crew Prepare for Undocking

Space Shuttle

Tue, 28 Jul 2009 04:02:20 AM CDT

The shuttle crew was awakened at 3:03 a.m. EDT to the strains of "Proud to Be an American" performed by Lee Greenwood. The song was selected for spacewalker Chris Cassidy, a former Navy SEAL, who now has 18 hours, five minutes of extravehicular activity to his credit over three spacewalks.

Commander Mark Polansky and his team will begin checking out the laser rangefinders and other equipment that will be used to provide precise readings on the distance between the two spacecraft.

The station will be reoriented for undocking by 12:38 p.m., and docking latches will open at 1:26 p.m.
