Today, the STS-124 Mission crewmembers took some off-duty time, the second and the last off-duty time on their 14-day mission.

A NASA PAO event was held and all the crewmembers participated in that on-orbit media interview.

After the NASA PAO event, the crew stowed the Orbiter Boom Sensor System (OBSS) in the shuttle's payload bay and powered down the Shuttle Remote Manipulator System (SRMS), shuttle's robotic arm.

The engineers and the experts on the ground have been working on the imagery data taken during the yesterday's heat shield inspection with the OBSS and SRMS.

The shuttle crew burned the Reaction Control System (RCS) thrusters in order to adjust its orbit and set the orbiter up for the landing.
