Crew to Pack for Trip Home With almost all of the equipment delivered in the Leonardo Multi-Purpose Logistics Module unloaded, the focus of Space Shuttle Discovery's crew will be packing up and loading Leonardo with trash and unneeded equipment for the return home. The STS-102 crew will also get some time off in the second half of its day.
Wednesday morning, STS-102 Commander Jim Wetherbee fired Discovery's engines a day early to raise the orbit of the station and shuttle to ensure that they would avoid a piece of equipment that was accidentally released during a space walk earlier in the mission. The other two reboost maneuvers scheduled for the mission will occur on schedule.
