Flight Engineer Jeff Williams and Commander Pavel Vinogradov continue preparing the station for its rendezvous and docking with space shuttle Discovery on mission STS-121. The two crew members have checked out the robotic arm, serviced U.S. spacesuits and configured communication headsets. Discovery will bring equipment and supplies to the station.

The shuttle is set for launch July 1 at 3:49 p.m. EDT delivering a third crew member for Expedition 13 — European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Reiter. This will return the station to three crew members for the first time since 2003.
