The crews of space shuttle Endeavour and the International Space Station woke at 7:56 p.m. EDT to “Galaxy Song” performed by Clint Black. The song was dedicated to the whole crew by the flight control team.

At 9:56 p.m., Mission Specialist Drew Feustel and Pilot Greg Johnson will talk to reporters from television stations in their respective home states of Michigan and Ohio. Beginning at 12:46 a.m., a 14-minute maneuver will be performed to boost the attitude of the space station by about 3,500 feet.

On Sunday at 6:56 a.m., the crew of Endeavour will say goodbye to the Expedition 28 crew members then close the hatches between the International Space Station and Endeavour for the last time as the shuttle crew prepares for undocking and return to Earth on Wednesday.
