Endeavour’s Crew Awake to Begin Flight Day 13

The crews of space shuttle Endeavour and Expedition 28 woke at 8:01 p.m. EDT to the song “Will You Carry Me?” performed by Michael FitzPatrick, played for the entire crew. FitzPatrick has been an Electrical, Environmental, Consumables, and Mechanical flight controller at NASA’s Johnson Space Center for more than 20 years and supported 80 missions.

Today the crew will be performing maintenance on the Carbon Dioxide Removal Assembly, reconfiguring the spacesuits from yesterday’s spacewalk, and transferring cargo between the shuttle and station.

Commander Mark Kelly, Pilot Greg Johnson and Expedition 28 Flight Engineer Ron Garan will participate from space in a community gathering in Tucson at 10:16 p.m. They will answer questions about their mission from a gathering of 100 local public school students from the area, the University of Arizona and NASA Space Grant partners.

At 8:46 a.m. Saturday, Johnson will talk to reporters from television stations in Michigan and Ohio.
