Last night (FD10), JEM Remote Manipulator System (JEMRMS), the Kibo's robotic arm, was fully deployed and finally translated into the stow position. After the final deployment, a series of brake tests were conducted and it worked just as expected.

Inside the ISS, the crew opened the hatch of the Experiment Logistics Module Pressurized Section (ELM-PS) after completing the outfitting of the Pressurized Module (PM)/ELM-PS vestibule. At 3:21 a.m., Hoshide and some crewmembers entered the ELM-PS.

The followings are the tasks completed today on-orbit.

  • JEMRMS final deployment
  • JEMRMS stow position

  • JEMRMS joints brake test

  • PM/ELM-PS vestibule outfitting

  • ELM-PS ingress

  • Exchange of the Battery Charger Module (BCM)

  • Discovery / ISS Joint Crew News Conference

Hoshide's activities on FD10

Hoshide spent this morning working on the JEMRMS-related tasks. He manipulated the JEMRMS from the JEMRMS console in the PM and translated the position of the JEMRMS into the stow position. He also performed the JEMRMS brake tests.

After the final deployment and brake tests were completed, he returned to the PM and continued the outfitting of the PM/ELM-PS vestibule. After the outfitting was completed, he opened the hatch of the ELM-PS and entered the module.

Just before the sleep period, Hoshide participated in the Discovery/ISS Joint Crew News Conference along with the other STS-124 mission and ISS crewmembers.
