The JEMRMS Backup Drive System (BDS) was installed in the Pressurized Module (PM) at 10:39 p.m. last night, and with that, all the scheduled tasks related to Kibo were completed.

In addition, some final transfer items were transferred from the ISS to Discovery.

After that, the STS-124 Mission crewmembers took some free time, their first off-duty time on this busy mission.

At 5:42 a.m., the hatches between the ISS and Discovery were closed. After the hatch closure, the shuttle crew performed the ODS (orbiter docking system) leak check and the rendezvous tools checkout in preparation for tomorrow's undocking from the ISS.

Hoshide installed the JEMRMS Backup Drive System (BDS) in the PM. With this, all the Kibo-related tasks planned on this mission were completed.

After bidding the farewell to the ISS crewmembers, he moved to the Discovery's side and closed the shuttle's hatch. Then, he depressurized the ODS and performed a series of leak check procedures.
