Replaying the wake up song with REM - was a good one. Wonder who they've got planned for the last few days if we're already into the Elton John and REM level mid-mission!

Third time REM had been the wake up song.

Josh playing with his PAO console joystick to move the cameras again (;D Well that's what I used to think. Informed that they are in comms with a TV production team who are in control of the cameras and videos etc.)

FD7 Execute Package
http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/570209main_fd07_expk.pdf

Great note on TriDAR on page 3:

"The TriDAR team would like to thank you for your excellent troubleshooting on FD03 and is happy to report that they have received great data. More than 70,000 data and telemetry files have been downlinked from the PGSC and the support team is busy pouring over the data. Early analysis indicates that the system has outperformed the docking results received from STS-128 and STS-131."

They probably have even less say over how the spacecraft cameras are pointed.  Guessing there are times they might wish to be as powerful as we imagine.

Sounds like no resolution on TVIS (the Russian treadmill).

Also PAO notes they might keep the old gyroscope on orbit (as it was planned to come down on shuttle), as they are seeing the same signature.

I think they've all had that 'locker room' view of each other before.  As noted, it's been many years since something like this, but it used to be common.

And while these videos are playing here's one for you all to watch, which you'll never see on NASA TV for obvious reasons:

http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=25988.0

Everyone should watch that, at least once.

Nope, I stand corrected -- Josh says they can, and work with CATO and INCO, respectively.

If this were night time, I'd have a perfect pass opportunity coming up. Alas, I will not be able to see the shuttle on orbit for its final time, due to the timing  :(
