Space Shuttle Discovery Gets 'House in Order' Before Re-Entry

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Space shuttle Discovery's crew is
expected to spend its last full day in space stowing equipment and
testing the spacecraft's steering jets.
Discovery's seven-member crew also had a break scheduled Friday
to talk via satellite with students from President Barack Obama's
alma mater, the Punahou ('POON-uh-hoe) School in Hawaii.
Two of Discovery's crew members, Joseph Acaba and Richard
Arnold, are former teachers.
Obama talked to Discovery's crew while they were still docked at
the international space station on Tuesday.
Discovery is due back on Earth on Saturday after its mission to
deliver and install power-generating solar wings at the space
station.
