Moving equipment and supplies between Discovery and the International Space Station, robotics activities and preparation for Monday’s 6.5-hour spacewalk kept shuttle and station astronauts busy much of Sunday.

Transfer activities began during the crews’ morning. About 2,000 pounds of cargo was brought to the station on Discovery’s middeck, and about 2,600 pounds is to be returned to Earth by the shuttle.

STS-133 Mission Specialists Alvin Drew and Steve Bowen configured tools for their Monday spacewalk. All shuttle crew members along with Expedition 26 Commander Scott Kelly and Flight Engineer Paolo Nespoli were scheduled for an hour-long procedures review.

Flight Engineer Cady Coleman joined Kelly and the STS-133 crew to talk with media representatives during the afternoon. Asking the questions were reporters from The Weather Channel, Boston’s WBZ Radio, WSB-TV of Atlanta and WTVT-TV of Tampa, Fla.
