Thanks for the coverage.  Did the problem with the CO2 correct itself or was it from a faulty reading?

As far as I understand it seems to be a sensor issue not an issue with the CO2 level itself.

I seem to recall there was mention that Pirs would eventually be discarded but from what I can find, it sounds like Pirs will remain in place allowing more Progress craft to dock there and help with roll control.

Is this the most up-to-date position?

Pirs will be eventually discarded, but just to free up the docking port for the russian laboratory, which isn't to arrive until late 2011. Don't know exactly how long in advance of the MLM launch the undocking of Pirs is scheduled.

Great coverage guys, thanks!

One more EVA in the books :)

Awesome coverage, thanks very much for providing it Carsten! Those RS helmetcam views from Strela are breathtaking, and quite rare! Hope they'll release the pictures Mike took.

One question for whoever may know: the press conference graphics show the docking cone as being installed in Zvezda forward, and being relocated in the nadir port. This cone doesn't appear in the final configuration, but obviously there must be something that closes the Zvezda-Zarya interface, at least for the internal EVA. I suppose they'll also want to be able to seal any given module, so for that they'll need some sort of hatch too. Are they just relocating the nadir cover to the forward interface?

Thanks very much. Difficult to keep track of all the movements sometimes.

Excellent article (and pictures) here (in Russian):

2 июня 2009 года 15:10 | Герман Петелин    
Россия запускает космический «прикид»

   http://svpressa.ru/issue/news.php?id=9547


Thank you Jim!
From the article:
MK is the 5th generation of the Orlan spacesuit.
The main difference is the presence of a computer (hence "K" in "MK") which monitors 50 different parameters and alerts the spacewalker if necessary. The next generation will not only monitor these parameters but will also be able to automatically control them.

Also the article has an interesting comparion:
EMU: Weight 136Kg, Can be used for 180days.
Orlan-MK: Weight 120Kg, Can be used for 4 years (15 EVAs)

Actually EMU is certified for 3 years.

Russian EVA-22:June 5, 2009
« Reply #135 on: 11/21/2009 12:31 PM »



Please take a look at this video.  Pause at 00:01

Could someone please explain to me why there are scuba divers apparently helping the astronauts do their stuff in space?

Observe the top left-hand corner monitor.  This was broadcast during the Russian EVA-22:June 5, 2009 , but no longer available on NASA's site (well, I haven't had any success in retrieving it as yet).

They could just be replaying some of the Russian Hydrolab training video for this EVA on the screen. There appears to be an Orlon suited figure at the far left, but the image is so small and resolution so low it's hard to tell for sure.

Just replays of the training ops when they trained to do this on the ground.

Many thanks for your replies.  Replaying training videos certainly seems to makes sense.  Would you happen to know whether this is standard practice for all procedures, or only done when a problem occurs?
