Sounds like a mis-allignment issue for the CDRA bed, crew working on it. Maybe something due to not being extended, and they might be close

Critical item to do was CDRA, not specifically designed to be repaired on orbit and have come a long way with ability to repair the CDRA on orbit
Been working on it most of the day, were a little behind
May finish it tomorrow
Goal is to change out 1 of 2 cartridges
An hour or so away from finishing it, expect it to be done by tomorrow
Continued with transfers
66% done
Did work in joint airlock, preparing EMUís for return on shuttle
Have replaced older parts on the station EMUís with newer parts on shuttle EMUís
Looking ahead to 135 we configured the space suit Mike will use on 135 space walk
FD 14 Ė last min transfers, hatch close
FD 15 - undock


Questions

Q: Are you bringing down the EFGF?

A: Coming down on 135


Q: What happens if you cant finish the CDRA work ?

A: Have 2 functional CDRAís. These can remove all the C02 we need to. If we donít finish tomorrow station crew could do it, or do it after 135.


Q: Would an extra day be useful ?

A: Theres always more to do. Have done all high priority objectives. Already have a long mission


Q: Where did OGS maintence end up ?

A: Finished it, all working as expected


Q: CDRA has 2 beds each with 2 filters?

A: Believe so


Q: Thoughts on seeing the US segment complete on fly around?

A: Flyarounds are always spectacular. Pictures we got with the fish eye lens are some of the most amazing Iíve seen.

Q:  Thoughts now the assembly is completed ?

A: Been a lot of ups and downs. In early 90ís it seems like there was a 2 year redesign cycle. Doubted weíd get any hardware launched. 1998 Ė 2003 we went from questions on program happening to getting lots done. We do so much planning work when it actually happens it looks easy. Itís a tribute to people at all the NASA centres.

Thanks Aaron, and thanks to Robert, Mike and everyone else who have chipped in during this mainly CDRA day (there's only so many screenshots of that one can post).

Good day to recharge ahead of the final milestones.

Can anyone explain that cartoon?

Online Chris Bergin

Can anyone explain that cartoon?

Probably the APU issue, which is minor and I'll write up for FD14's article via cool MMT presentations in you know where.

It's a still from Mel Brook's "Young Frankenstein".  That's Marty Feldman as "Igor".  Pronounced "eyegore."  He's getting the brain for transplant and the quote that went under the picture, was "close enough."  This is when he grabs the criminal brain instead of the normal brain.  Perhaps refers to replacing CDRA parts.
