From the execute package I note that there is an anomaly with the OBSS's sensor package

Quote
LCS Anomaly
The OBSS Sensor Package 2 LCS experienced an erratic position sensor for the Y
galvanometer during Area Scan 12. The Y-galvo is used to position one of two
mirrors required to perform Area and Line scans. The X galvo looks OK. The team
is working to determine if the Y galvo anomaly will preclude acquisition of quality
LCS data, should LCS be required. This LCS anomaly does not affect the planned
FD12 OBSS Inspection.

Currently playing video taken yesterday inside Kibo.  Big space with no racks.  Garret demonstrating how to swim in air.

Flight Day 6 NASA TV Schedule:
I presume the times on the table are MET, CDT, EDT, and GMT but it would be nice to have them on the table header.

Looks like I was a little cut/paste happy.  It is now fixed.  I think I usually include it. :P

Kibo looking all the way through to Columbus.  Some gear already in place.  The exterior shot showing the CBM where the JPM will go.

I've written in the past about the critical importance of the big doorways in the CBM's to the success of the ISS design, and I'm always interested in good shots of BIG stuff like racks being carefully passed through these doorways. If anybody catches such views today that dramatically illustrate this concept, and can share them via posting or direct email ([email protected]), I'd appreciate it for future use when I again sing the praises of key ISS design features that are often overlooked. Thanks!
