Operations Report – February 19th

Hi CapCom,

I’m Gabriel, and here is my Operation report.

Crew 189 Operations Report 19Feb2018

SOL: 1

Name of person filing report: Gabriel PAYEN

Non-nominal systems: Roof heater, pipe leak in low deck, ethernet hub, fan of backpack 4

Notes on non-nominal systems:

-Ethernet Hub :

This afternoon an experiment had trouble with an ethernet hub. We’ll try to fix it tonight or tomorrow.

-Fan :

During the engineering check all backpack seemed to be nominal but a fan on backpack 4 turned out of service during the EVA. Tomorrow the crew will be very busy, but we are planning an important backpack fixing operation during the upcoming days.

-Pipe leak :

The flow seems to be reduced, the bucket was empty this morning and at 50% tonight.

-Roof heater :

This morning it was very difficult to control the roof heater. Sometimes the flow became tepid or even cold without any reason because the furnace stops running. I’ve turned on the wall heater which runs all day.
