This morning we decided to cancel EVA#9 (Venzha’s CEMs Project) because we had the water tank problems. After the daily operational check, we checked and sampled the water inside the white tank and the black tank. Shannon had already pumped out almost all of the water this morning, we fully emptied the water from the white tank. After that we measured the size of the tank and also the shutter of the RAM. It seemed that the tank could be pass into the RAM through the shutter. So we tried it, and did it. So now we got a choice to clean the tank without breaking the SIM later on.
