Flight Day #4



[08:15am] :: M&M suited up. things are running early. one's canadian, one's american (i think he's got the stripe). Red is for the Maple Leaf. okay? don't know if this ever happened before, but these are the 1st EVAs for both of them & they will be doing all EVAs (3) for this mission. EVA1 starts 9:31am & ends 4:01pm (PT). Hobaugh & Anderson in the backfield & Caldwell coaching. Animations: + S5 Truss Overview | + S5 Truss Installation

[09:53pm] :: EVA1 lasted 6h17m; S5 added to station & P6 radiator secured. M&M ran though that checklist so fast they had time for leisurely beers afterwards. tomorrow's focused inspection has 5 main areas of interest, primary: tile damage near starboard main landing gear. after today's briefing they've got more cause/location/previous flight history data. damage caused by a piece of (possibly iced) foam from a bracket on external tank's 17-foot feedline. unlucky bounce to Endy's belly. however, ding location doesn't appear critical; tomorrow's FI determines how deep it is. if i got this right, this occurs quite frequently: STS-114, STS-121, STS-115, STS-118. additionally, {a} SSPTS wasn't completely deactivated as planned during the EVA, power transfer continued but dropped to 2 kilowatts, back to 6 kilowatts after EVA ended; {b} US C&C (command & control) computer failed @ 12:52pm PT, but primary-secondary-standby computers did the redundancy boogie; after data check it's expected primary computer returns online. ok, during tomorrow's FI the SSRMS unberths OBSS & hands it to SRMS & after FI SRMS gives OBSS back to SSRMS. got it? hmm, maybe i should check & see whether anyone's done a study on acronyms & alcohol consumption. me? i'm debating whether i should add all AQ phrases for all flight days; adding FD#4 asteroid in just a minute or two.

[11:44pm] :: #746 Marlu (1913 QY), Main-belt Asteroid, Discovered 1913-Mar-01 by Kaiser, F. at Heidelberg; named for Marie-Louise Kaiser, the discoverer's daughter, a physician; NASA's maries, louises & kaisers: Marie-Louise Kelley & Hypersonic vehicle simulation model Winged-cone configuration: Aerodynamic, propulsion, and mass models for a generic, horizontal-takeoff, single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO) configuration are presented which are suitable for use in point mass as well as batch and real-time six degree-of-freedom simulations. The simulations can be used to investigate ascent performance issues and to allow research, refinement, and evaluation of integrated guidance flight propulsion thermal control systems, design concepts, and methodologies for SSTO missions; Michael Kaiser, Project Scientist for STEREO; MARIE: The Martian Radiation Environment Experiment.

segue to Dafydd Williams who, became involved in basic science research on the role of adrenal steroid hormones in modifying the activity of regions within the central nervous system involved in the regulation of sleep-wake cycles. don't know much about steroids except i know they play an important role in human biology, but another segue to Barry Bonds & STS-118 home run theme. Bonds hit #756 on 07-August, #757 on 08-August & #758 on 10-August. #757 established Bonds as the single Home Run King, the same day STS-118 Endeavour (youngest shuttle & last to return to flight) launched. home run kings: Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth — Ruth held the title from 1921-1974 [+][+][+][+][+].

FD#744 :: describing something hyperbolically, to briefly re-describe it without the exaggeration » a type of conic section defined as the intersection between a right circular conical surface and a plane which cuts through both halves of the cone.

all AQ-746s in my wordlist:

AQ 746 = EVERY WORD OF MY TESTIMONY WAS ACCURATE = HYPERSTITIONAL EFFECTIVITY OF RELIGION = I AM THE HAWK-HEADED LORD OF SILENCE & OF STRENGTH = MADE HERSELF OBNOXIOUS TO THE GOVERNMENT = PART OF A PATTERN OF CONSCIOUS MISCONDUCT = SPEAK FOR A PURPOSE, SPEAK TO BE UNDERSTOOD = VOTING RIGHTS ACT NAILED TO BURNING CROSS.

AQ-743 to AQ-745

AQ 743 = ALL OF FASNACHT REPRESENTS A VIVID REMINDER = CONSEQUENCE OF THE HORIZONTAL COMPONENT = COUNTDOWN FRIDAY: CONTEMPT FOR CONGRESS = DON'T BLAME ME IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE REFLECTION = DURING THE HEIGHT OF THE COMPUTER FAILURES = INCREASED RESISTANCE AT SMALL BIAS VOLTAGES = IRANIAN TELEVISION FOOTAGE OF THE DETAINEES = KETHER CHOCKMAH BINAH CHESED GEBURAH TIPHARETH = NOT AWARE OF THE POWER THEY HAVE AND IT'S FEAR = PAST THE POINT WHERE GOOD DEEDS CAN SAVE IRAQ = SUBDUE THY FEAR AND THY DISGUST. THEN -- YIELD! = THE OCTOBER SURPRISE STORY WAS SUICIDE = THIS TEAM IS MADE UP OF VETERANS AND ROOKIES = UNRESOLVED HANDLING OF THE PERIOD SETTING = ZEROTH MOTHER OF MATRIX HYPERSTITION.

AQ 744 = GRACE JONES WITH THE RADIO SCIENCE ORCHESTRA = INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM OBSERVATORY = MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD = NATIONAL SPACE SOCIETY EXPERIMENTAL WIKI = NOTHING STRANGE OR UNEXPECTED ABOUT THAT = OVER THE EQUATOR AROUND 55 WEST LONGITUDE = RELATION BETWEEN THE FINITE AND THE INFINITE = TESTAMENT TO THE POWER OF THE LITTLE GUY = THE ALL, THUS INTERWOVEN OF THESE, IS BLISS = THE DEPARTURE INTO ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE = THE OFFICIAL HANDBOOK OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE = YOU CAN BET THE H.M.S. PINAFORE WILL BE WATCHING.

AQ 745 = ALCHEMICAL / COSMOGONIC MODELS OF CIRCULATION = BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS, IT'S AN UPHILL BATTLE = FIVE WAYS TO THINK ABOUT BLACK BOX TESTING = OH LORD, PLEASE DON'T LET ME BE MISUNDERSTOOD = PATH OF VENUS OVER THE FACE OF THE FATHER SUN = SPACE TRAVEL AND TRUTH IN BUMPER STICKERS = SYNERGY OF THE WEAK AND THE STRONG PARADIGM = THE WORD "SINGULARITY" HAS LOST ALL MEANING = THINGS HAD SORT OF CALMED DOWN IN THE STORY = WIPING OUT A FEW DATABASES TO CLEAR MY CREDIT.
