On day nine of a record-setting 16-day mission, the crew of STS-123 took a much-needed break. With the enormous Dextre robot installed and the Kibo experimental logistics module attached, mission control gave the weary crew a day off. The mission is the longest in shuttle history because of a newly installed power-transfer system that allows Endeavor to draw power from the International Space Station. Although they have a scheduled day off, the crew still has press conferences and a scheduled conversation with Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda. Stay tuned for more updates on the progress of STS-123.
