Endeavour power up September 27
« on: 09/16/2005 04:44 PM »
From SG on SDC:

"The initial electrical power up after the OV-105 modification period is scheduled for September 27.
The re-assembly of the vehicle is going well with crews working 24/7 to reinstall avionic boxes. There are 198 connectors that remain to be mated prior to that powerup milestone."

Good, it's been a long time since we've had news on this Orbiter.

Points to a different payload. I'm not sure it will be STS-117(B).

Work also needed to be done on OV-105 is on the avionics boxes and a freon collant loop. This is pre-power up.

That's still flexable, but a good solid timeline for the somewhat forgetten Orbiter.

Interesting rollout date. We might see all three Orbiters in action next year.

A few issues to resolve today (I'm not in today) before power up tomorrow (when I am in).
