Err... that certainly doesn't look like they were rotated. ???
that's what I say:"Finally they are all removed…." (and not rotated).

JAXA has posted H-2B F7 launch images in its "Digital Archives" section.  Here's one.

Possibly the Latch and bolt driving assemblies had to be removed because ISPR racks have to be translated trough the hatches. The opening might have been to tight when they were rotated away. AFAIK, Cygnus has a smaller hatch, and both Dragon and Cygnus don't transport full rack up to the ISS. Most likely M3 bags can be transported trough the (dragon and Node 2) hatches when the latch and bolt driving assemblies are rotated away.
Any intrest in a ISS Topology (HTV-7 docked & pre departure)? [I could use some help with the Locker and drawers]
I've added the ISPR topo at HTV-7 docking. I've assumed this Japanese HTV-7 document is correct. link

(note; this topology contains two errors. 1) the Inhibitor Plates are called ORU Adapter Plates. And M1-1176 bag still has to be added in BEAM)

Yes, I know.  My point is that it contradicts the ISS Daily Summary Report.  Was the modification unable to be completed?  Was the modification removed?  Why the discrepancy?


Possibly the Latch and bolt driving assemblies had to be removed because ISPR racks have to be translated trough the hatches. The opening might have been to tight when they were rotated away. AFAIK, Cygnus has a smaller hatch, and both Dragon and Cygnus don't transport full rack up to the ISS.

This is an interesting theory, and it sounds plausible.

It's a good thing they launched when they did. Typhoon Trami is currently estimated to make direct landfall on Tanegashima island where HTV launches from in a few hours.

Life Science Glovebox (LSG) hardware temporarily installed into JPM1F5
Express Rack 9B transferred from HTV-7 to COL1F2
RSR transferred from JPM1A5 to HTV-7
Express Rack 10B transferred from HTV-7 to JPM1A5
RSR transferred from LAB1P1 to HTV-7

Here is a tweetwith images of the LSG (Live Science Glovebox) transfer activities (temp stow in ZSR & JPM F5).

There was one further RSR trasfer from PMM O2 to HTV7. So it looks like HTV-7 will deorbit 3x RSR.

Alex and Serena are currently working in HTV, odd on a weekend.  The reason?  Apparently trash already placed there stinks, really stinks.  Serena was blunt about it with CAPCOM who suspected that was the reason but didn't want to say it on the loop.  Dirty clothes and old food remnants smell, apparently even in space.  :)

Hefty bags to the rescue.  The aroma offending items were placed in hefty bags which helped knock down the smell.  Seriously, the smell was so bad the hatch to HTV had to be closed...

Where was this previously stowed and why hadn't it been a problem before?

Foul smelling trash was an issue earlier in the increment and surely, previously.   From what I could gather listening to audio, trash was being stored in the PMM but was being pushed further and further back over time.  When visiting vehicles arrived, the smelliest trash wasn't necessarily being removed because it was getting buried and the time wasn't being provided to dig it out. I have the strong impression that the crew expressed displeasure with the situation and insisted, perhaps with the support of previous crews, that time be provided to do the necessary digging.  My guess based on all this is that the smelliest items are being kept near the top of the pile now and placed into the HTV immediately in this case because the hatch can be closed, not true with the PMM...

As further proof, Alex used duct tape to seal the edges of the panel containing the hefty bags to further try and limit the smell.  He also asked about the air flow pattern into and out of HTV to see if it could be rerouted to some path with a filter.  CAPCOM didn't think so but the issue will be examined...
