My parents was just being born when the Apollo program is over. Why we are still stuck in this stagnation, let's go forward again

Screen shot captured from LabPare. You can see venting from 09:30, first a little bit (top and at ground), then little less and more later. Totally takes 2 minutes or so.

Wondering if they took it all the way to the maximum required.

Top venting has stopped, this means pressure is building in the tank.

Frost has deteriorated from the tank and now starting to go away from the bulkhead and lines are venting hard. Looks like de tanking.

 The picture is a little wavy from the heat today, but the 40ft cam should get a usable video if anything interesting happens.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

 Nice, steady vent for a while now. Could mean they're holding at target pressure.
