Training in swiming pool...

Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

This is normally the procedure during an EVA...
As usual, the PKhO Transfer Compartment with which Pirs and Poisk interface is sealed off during Russian EVAs to serve as a backup airlock.

PAO "You hear the translator..."  No I can't, you're talking over her.
Does anyone have a stream with just the translator?

I think they are done with prebreathe and suit checks and are only now beginning depressurization - anyone got better info?
