СЭС-1



Installed. A little bit wobbly but MCC-M is happy with the config.

Up next:
securing the Strela in a cradle on the FGB. Retraction of the arm back to Poisk is planned as a get-ahead.

I don't understand why they retarct the GStM (what the US call a "Strela crane") after each EVA ? During Mir, they let the GSt (the predecessor of GStM) in position, this way they didn't had to deploy it during the next EVA...

Actually, they don't retract it fully. Before this EVA, the end of the boom was stowed on Pirs, while the base is on Poisk. I don't think they're going to need it extended this far forward in the future EVAs, thus the get-ahead to retract it.

Alright, I'm lost. Which task are we at? Sasha is translating down the boom to meet up with Fyodor but why? I thought Fyodor was suppposed to route the power cable himself. Also, the Strela doesn't look to be secured in the cradle - it's moving around too much. Can anyone enlighten me?
