Questions, concerns, and requests to Mission Support:
• Did you troubleshoot the GreenHab radio? If so, is it in the RAM? We didn’t have any opportunity to go to the RAM today to check if it was in there.
• As the toilet’s tank replacement was postponed to the end of our rotation (thank you very much for that), should I remove “toilet” from the non-nominal systems or should I keep it?
