NASA ISS On-Orbit Status 5 August 2012
All ISS systems continue to function nominally, except those noted previously or below. Sunday – Crew off duty. Ahead: Week 6 of Increment 32 (six-person crew).
At wakeup, Gennady Padalka performed the routine inspection of the SM (Service Module) PSS Caution & Warning panel as part of regular Daily Morning Inspection.
Sergei Revin completed the routine daily & weekly servicing of the SOZh system (Environment Control & Life Support System, ECLSS) in the SM and FGB. [This included the weekly collection of the toilet flush (SP) counter and water supply (SVO) readings of SM & FGB for calldown to TsUP-Moscow, as well as the weekly checkup on the Russian POTOK-150MK (150 micron) air filter unit of the SM’s & FGB’s SOGS air revitalization subsystem, gathering weekly data on total operating time & “On” durations for calldown. SOZh servicing includes checking the ASU toilet facilities, replacement of the KTO & KBO solid waste containers and replacement of EDV-SV waste water and EDV-U urine containers as required.]
Suni Williams closed the protective shutters of the Lab, Node-3/Cupola & JPM (JEM Pressurized Module) windows in preparation for tonight’s planned HTV3 EP (H-II Transfer Vehicle 3 Exposed Platform) hand-off by SSRMS (Space Station Remote Manipulator) to the JEM RMS (Robotic Maneuvering System).
At ~5:40am, Padalka, Revin & Malenchenko joined for a PAO TV downlink, extending greetings & congratulations for the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Russia’s Air Force (8/12).
At ~6:05am, Sunita powered up the SM’s amateur radio equipment (Kenwood VHF transceiver with manual frequency selection, headset, & power supply) and at 6:20am conducted a ham radio session with participants in Space Jam 6 at the Octave Chanute Aerospace Museum.
FE-2, FE-3 & FE-6 conducted their weekly PFCs (Private Family Conferences), via S-band/audio and Ku-band/MS-NetMeeting application (which displays the uplinked ground video on an SSC laptop), Aki at ~3:45am, Sergei at ~7:40am, Joe at ~3:20pm EDT.
The crew worked out on the CEVIS cycle ergometer with vibration isolation (FE-3, FE-6), TVIS treadmill with vibration isolation & stabilization (CDR, FE-2, FE-4), ARED advanced resistive exerciser (FE-2, FE-3, FE-5, FE-6), T2/COLBERT advanced treadmill (FE-5), and VELO ergometer bike with load trainer (CDR, FE-4).
Suni recorded her session on the T2/COLBERT advanced treadmill with the G1 camera and MPC (Multi-Protocol Converter) downlink.
Tasks listed for Revin, Malenchenko & Padalka on the Russian discretionary “time permitting” job for today were –
* A ~30-min. session for Russia’s EKON Environmental Safety Agency, making observations and taking KPT-3 aerial photography of environmental conditions on Earth using the NIKON D3X camera with the RSK-1 laptop,
* A 10-min. photography session for the DZZ-13 “Seiner” ocean observation program, obtaining HDV (Z1) camcorder footage of color bloom patterns in the waters of Central-Eastern Atlantic and coastal Africa, then copying the images to the RSK-1 laptop, and
* More preparation & downlinking of reportages (written text, photos, videos) for the Roskosmos website to promote Russia’s manned space program (max. file size 500 Mb).
