NASA STS-128 FD05 MMT Summary

The FD05 MMT met briefly to discuss mission progress. The team received a status from the Damage Assessment Team (DAT) and, overall, the vehicle’s thermal protection system is in great shape.

The final results from their analysis will be available tomorrow and it is anticipated that they will only have good news.

The team continues to assess the viability of the ALT DAP to perform mated maneuvers and the preliminary results look favorable. Those final results are expected soon.

Finally, the team is assessing troubleshooting options for the higher-than-normal drive currents that were observed on one of the ISS CBM bolts.
