While the Expedition 25 crew members wait for space shuttle Discovery on the STS-133 mission, they continue unloading cargo from the ISS Progress 40 resupply craft. They also are preparing the U.S. spacesuits in the Quest airlock that will be worn during the two spacewalks planned for STS-133.

The Space Shuttle Program Mission Management Team decided Wednesday to resume the countdown for Discovery’s mission and continue toward a 3:29 p.m. EDT Thursday launch. The launch of Discovery was delayed to Thursday after electrical irregularities occurred when the shuttle main engine controllers were powered up early Tuesday. Discovery is delivering the Permanent Multipurpose Logistics Module and Robonaut 2.

The six station crew members continue with their routine activities including exercise, maintenance and science.
