Operations Report – April 8th

SOL: 8
Name of person filing report: Louis Joseph
Non-nominal systems: Suit 5 (battery connection), Suit 2 (stuck valve) and Suit 9 (broken visor)
Notes on non-nominal systems: After fixing the faulty connection of Suit 5, we check its battery voltage a few times over the course of 2 days. No voltage deficits were noticed. We decided to try Suit 5 on a short EVA (45min) this morning. No problems were noticed until we came back to the station. While in the airlock, the ventilation of Suit 5 turned off. We checked the suit afterwards and the ventilation began to work again after disconnecting and reconnecting internal electric cables to the battery. Further investigation is required before using it again on future EVAs. No solutions found for Suit 2 yet.
