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).

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

Rover:
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
showers.
Radios: Great news, we have received and tested the radios, they are
fully operational!


Best,
