STS-2 - Orbit 2 to Sleep Period - Full Mission

STS-2 mission continues. After launch and the first orbit completed the crew troubleshoot some issues seen with the APUs during launch. Star Tracker and IMU alignments are performed,  the cargo-bay doors are opened and the crew and Houston troubleshoot a faulty fuel cell, which has to be shutdown, bringing into play the mission rule of a shortened 2 day mission rather than the original planned 5 days. The sleep period starts to end Day 1 orbital activities.
