Will the last shuttle leave it's Orbiter Boom Sensor System on the ISS? This can be a very useful tool helping them get to hard-to-reach places like on STS-120.

Wouldn't it be a waste not to leave it there?

At last update, mission managers were planning to leave an OBSS at the station with the final shuttle mission, in part as a result of the work completed to stow the boom on the Starboard 1 (S1) truss between the STS-123 and STS-124 flights.
