STS-135 crew picked the song "Celebration" for the Shuttle workforce (for what they've done).

Stennis on the video.

The message included "Let the good times roll" in French.

I can only assume they have seen the SLS documentation ;)

So I assume that's going to be what they'll do to EOM, people celebrating their layoffs? It's the Garver good times on NASA TV.

I would prefer Weird Al Yankovic doing his Lady Gaga spoof "Perform this way"...

What's a vinyl album?   ;)

If I heard correctly, PAO states that the overall mission is 94% complete on the MPLM transfers.

MPLM pack up. 94 percent complete. Small items.

Middeck transfers - late pack items (science) - into double cold bags. GLACIER (fridge) too.

No crew in the middeck with four person crew, so more space for returns (like the gyro).

EMU work to help prep for the Russian Stage EVA in August.
