Orbit 3 PAO Brandi Dean summarizing...GPC 4 was doing systems management, moving that to GPC 2.  Said that GPC 4 failed, but didn't catch any details.

an alarm actually woke up the crew...
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

GPC 3 had the earlier problems--correct?

The switch tease was with GPC 3, but that was a switch issue and that GPC was reloaded and is good.

Not ready for auto antennas yet, so CapCom Shannon Lucid asking to switch to lower left forward antenna (S-band, I believe).

I think that call gives the antenna switching back to the GPCs.

Polled the room and the crew can go back to sleep...asking about wake up...about 5 hours and 40 minutes from scheduled wake up.

Getting an extra 30 minutes.

Brandi with the updated crew wake up time...was 11:29 pm Central, now 11:59 pm.

Official crew sleep time was 3:29 pm Central, so the GPC failure with resultant master alarm occurred about 90 minutes into their sleep period.

The closing scene in the flight day highlights is video showing Typhoon Ma-on, which is currently headed toward Japan.

[edit to add]
Ma-on is now a major typhoon; category 3. Landfall is forecasted to be while Ma-on is weakening, but still a major typhoon.

Not sure if we'll hear any details on the failure during the rest of the shift, but the ISS Flight Director Update is on the schedule at the end of the shift at 11:45 pm Central.

And ditto on the thanks to Targeteer for catching that!

Crew wake up was adjusted on the clock -- now just about 5 hours and 40 minutes from the updated time.

At an MET of approx. 6 days, 7 hours, and 50 minutes.
