Summary of Engineering activities:
Unclogging the static tank:
The static tank was unclogged today according to the procedure
described in the CapCom Guide. I extracted the clogging from the
filter and it is now clean. I took a few pictures of the proceedings
if need be. I found the little grid of the filter slightly damaged (a
few holes in the grid).

The glass part of the three helmets were replaced so now the three
helmets are perfectly clear and clean.

The NorCal Rover is fully operational and has been tested inside the
tunnel to and back from the observatory. We’d like to use it during
tomorrow’s EVA (cf. EVA Request #5)

Questions and Concerns to Mission Support:

Water: There is hot water for dishwashing but one crewmember took a
shower today and it was cold. Maybe that’s because hot water takes a
little bit of time to get to the shower and we only take short
Radios: Great news, we have received and tested the radios, they are
fully operational!
