Ooops - ISS Cuts its own cord ...?
« on: 12/22/2005 08:52 am »
In the latest ISS status report

is talks about the The Trailing Umbilical System 2 on the Mobile Transporter rail car that appears to have decided to sever it's self ...?

Eh .... Surely there should be a BIG bunch of safety bits that should be in there to stop that from happening?

I can understand the need for the system to be there (in case the cable got tangled) But for it to just "decide" one day - "nah donít like being plugged in any more ...."

Anyone shed any light on this - is it systematic of a larger underlying fault ?
