    Packing for the Voyage Home


    In the grasp of the International Space Station's Canadarm2 robotic arm, the Leonardo Multi-Purpose Logistics Module is placed back in Discovery's payload bay. STS-128 pilot Kevin Ford and astronaut Jose Hernandez were at the controls of the robotic arm in the Destiny laboratory. They grappled Leonardo and removed it from the Harmony node and placed it inside the shuttle's payload bay for the return home. Image Credit: NASA (More at NASA Picture Of The Day)
