The STS-133 and Expedition 26 crew members spent much of their time Saturday offloading the Permanent Multipurpose Module and filling the H-II Transfer Vehicle with items no longer needed aboard the International Space Station. They also performed maintenance on the Oxygen Generation Assembly and the Carbon Dioxide Removal Assembly.

Commander Steve Lindsey, Pilot Eric Boe, and Mission Specialists Alvin Drew, Steve Bowen and Nicole Stott and station Flight Engineer Cady Coleman spent most of their day in the new module unpacking and working on Leonardo’s interior. They also moved packing material into the Japanese H-II Transfer Vehicle for destruction on its re-entry after undocking later this month.

Station Flight Engineer Paolo Nespoli and Mission Specialist Michael Barratt worked on the Carbon Dioxide Removal Assembly in the Destiny laboratory, bypassing a failed heater circuit.

Station Commander Scott Kelly worked to install a new filter on an Oxygen Generation Assembly.
