MRPO Daily Status Report 07-23-02
GMT Date: 204
Calendar Date: 07/23/02
Payloads currently on-board ISS:
ADVASC, BSTC, InSPACE, MAMS, MEPS, MSG (facility), PFMI, SAMS, StelSys, STES-8, SUBSA and ZCG. InSpace will not operate during this increment.
MRPO payloads ADVASC, MAMS, SAMS, and STES 8 continue nominal unattended operations. BSTC, MEPS, StelSys, and ZCG operations have been successfully completed.
EXPRESS RACKS 1, 2 and 4 (ER1, ER2 & ER4) are powered and supporting payload operations. ER3 is installed in the US Lab and will be checked out later. ER5 was checked out during Increment 4 and powered down.
ADVASC is downlinking nominal health and status data. Blooms were seen today during ADVASC’s photo session, as well as four seed pods.
MAMS is operating nominally in the quasi-steady mode. HiRAP is turned-off. MAMS is monitoring SUBSA operations today. MAMS data is available on the acceleration measurement web page.
The MSG facility is currently powered and supporting the SUBSA experiment run.
PFMI is stowed in the US Lab and is scheduled to operate in the MSG during Stage 9A.
SAMS equipment in all EXPRESS racks is operating nominally. SAMS is monitoring SUBSA operations today. SAMS data is also being posted to the acceleration measurement web page.
STES-8 is downlinking nominal health and status data.
SUBSA is currently conducting a nominal experiment run.
ZCG is working with ARCTIC to have seven of ZCG’s metal autoclaves placed into the ARCTIC freezer to prevent degradation.
Week 7 (7/22-7/28) – Approximately 25 hours of crew time availability for NASA payload operations. Several MSG/SUBSA operations are planned.
Week 8 (7/29-8/4) -Preliminary planning indicates ADVASC and SUBSA operations.
