STS-124 MCC Status Report #10 :: 6:00 a.m. CDT :: HOUSTON – After spending the night camped out in the Quest airlock, astronauts Mike Fossum and Ron Garan are prepared to embark on the second of three spacewalks today to continue the outfitting of the newly installed Kibo laboratory. Fossum and Garan’s spacewalk today will focus on removing the thermal covers and other insulation on the outside of the laboratory, including the covers on Kibo’s robotic arm. In addition to installing some cameras on the outside of Kibo that will be used to monitor external payload work, they will also work on the zenith hatch of Kibo to remove some insulation that may get in the way of the hatch’s locking mechanism. Fossum and Garan also will complete some advance work on a nitrogen tank assembly that will be replaced on the third and final spacewalk of the mission. Today’s spacewalk is scheduled for 6.5 hours. Crew members woke up at 5:32 a.m. Thursday to “Fly Away,” performed by Lenny Kravitz. The song was played for Garan. Crew members will work to complete the transfer of the remaining racks from inside the Japanese Logistics Pressurized Module, delivered to the station by Endeavour in March. The hatch to that module will be closed this afternoon in preparation for its Friday relocation from the Harmony node to its final position on the Japanese Experiment Module, as part of Kibo. The crew is scheduled to go to sleep at 9:32 p.m. Thursday and awaken at 5:32 a.m. Friday. The next status report will be issued at the end of the crew’s day, or earlier if events warrant.

STS-124 MCC Status Report #11 :: 8 p.m. CDT :: HOUSTON – After a seven-hour spacewalk, the newly installed Kibo laboratory is closer to its final configuration. Mission specialists Mike Fossum and Ron Garan exited the space station at 10:04 a.m., nearly 30 minutes ahead of schedule, to begin the second spacewalk, which focused on external outfitting of the new module. They also worked on preparations for the exchange of a Nitrogen Tank Assembly, retrieved a failed camera and inspected an array mechanism. Once the two left the airlock, they made their way to the Kibo laboratory module where they installed cameras that will help monitor external robotic and payload operations. While in the vicinity, the two added insulating material to some areas of the module and removed thermal covers and insulation from others, specifically the Japanese robotic arm and the hatch on top of the module. A smaller component of the Japanese Experiment Module will be repositioned to that hatch location Friday. With the Kibo tasks behind them, the two proceeded to tasks in preparation for their next spacewalk. They loosened bolts holding two Nitrogen Tank Assemblies in place on the station’s truss. Those tanks will be swapped during Sunday's spacewalk. They also retrieved a failed external television camera from the port truss. That camera’s power supply will be replaced once inside the space station and the camera will be returned to its external location during Sunday's third spacewalk. Fossum then performed an inspection of the left Solar Alpha Rotary Joint, which has been performing perfectly. He relayed to the ground team that he did not see any shavings or debris, but took photos which will be sent to the ground for engineers to review. The spacewalk ended at 5:15 p.m. after seven hours, 11 minutes. The rest of the station and shuttle crew members continued with work inside the docked complex transferring supplies and equipment, outfitting the interior of Kibo and its robotics console, transferring racks into the new lab and readying for tomorrow’s relocation of the logistics module onto the lab. The crew is scheduled to go to sleep at 9:32 p.m. and awaken at 5:32 a.m. Friday. The next status report will be issued after the crew awakens, or earlier if events warrant.

AO 62 = UNPLANNED RECONTACT = HYPERSTITION = METALLIC SHAVINGS [+] = HIGH-RATE DATA LINE.

AO 66 = MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS = JOHNSON SPACE CENTER = KIBO DOCKING PORT = OBSS SENSOR PACKAGE 2 LCS = STS-124 DISCOVERY.

not that i'm equating this mission with ms, but exploring rusty's ms (which recently got worse) with starboard sarj. today finally caught up with CBS STS-124 Discovery Status Report & as i was nummifying that thought of AO-86 STS-124 DISCOVERY DATA STREAM. there's no AO-86s on the current wordlist — ie, i have plenty of AO-86s, but this is the 1st one since this mission started. so i run errands, get breakfast & i'm sitting here thinking… AO-86 RUSTY'S MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

i know as much about the problems with the starboard sarj as i do about rusty's ms. however, my doctor pointed out that my pdd seemed to provide insight to rusty's ms & rusty's ms could provide insight to my pdd. rusty's still in the why me? stage — there's still a lot of work to accomplish &c. which sounds similar to a space station that isn't operating at 100% & just installed a massive new laboratory.

AO 159 = INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (AO-117 ENCEPHALOMYELITIS DISSEMINATA, AO-117 UNCHANGING FACE OF THE CENTURIES) = ERRATIC POSITION SENSOR FOR THE Y GALVANOMETER (AO-117 STS-124 DISCOVERY EXECUTE PACKAGES).

AO-86 HYPERSTITIONAL NUMBERS are numbers deemed significant in Hyperstitional qabbalistic circles for whatever weird reasoning. off the top of my head they are 14, 55, 86, 99, 110, 111 & 210 (i'll add more as i think of them).

AO 4 = SARJ = 86 (AO-7 56, AO-14 86TH, AO-18 2×43, AO-22 AGENT 86, AO-30 1,2,43,86, AO-37 LXXXVI, AO-40 86 IN BINARY, AO-45 EIGHT-SIX, AO-53 EIGHTY-SIX, AO-63 EIGHTY-SIXTH, AO-68 01010110).

no, didn't know AO 4 = SARJ = 86 when i started this & that's the 1st AO-14 on the current wordlist & here's the second: AO-14 418 [+][+]. AO wordlist has two AO-418s (AO-54 THELEMIC NUMBER & here's the 3rd AO-14 ABRAHADABRA), this is the 2nd AO-418 (1st from AO-58 MATTHEW 11:12). note: STS-124.txt is the current wordlist & AO Wordlist (bunch of files) is the master list; there was one AO-418 on AO wordlist & this popped up today on STS-124 wordlist.

AO 418 = THE SARJ IS EQUIPPED WITH TWO DRIVE GEARS, AND THE BACKUP IS PRISTINE. BUT NASA DOES NOT WANT TO CHANGE GEARS UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY (4:00 PM, 6/3/08, Update: Kibo prepped for attachment to station) [+].

AO 187 = STATION CHIEF GIVES DETAILED UPDATE ON JOINT PROBLEM = A STUDENT SITS IN QUIET MEDITATION AND BEFORE HIS EYES (AO-27 AQUARIUS 9°) = AIM AT AVOIDING THE TEMPTATIONS OF METAPHORICITY (AO-78 TRAVELLING THE URBAN SPACE) = DNC RULES & BYLAWS COMMITTEE MEETING - MAY 31, 2008 - 9:30 AM = O SOVEREIGN PEITHO (SEDUCTION), HERALD OF APHRODITE = PRIVATE PROPERTY IS THUS THE PRODUCT... OF ALIENATED LABOUR (AO-78 THE GERMAN IDEOLOGY) = RISKING EVERYTHING FOR A DREAM THAT NOBODY SEES BUT YOU (AO-63 MILLION DOLLAR BABY) = SPECULATION REVERSES THE ROLES OF STATE AND CIVIL SOCIETY (A main theme of Marx's commentary on Hegel; AQ-78 THE GERMAN IDEOLOGY) = THE FINAL ASSESSMENT IS OF THE ORDER OF TEN BILLION* TO 1 (AO-82 FROM FIRST PRINCIPLES).



as soon as someone answers what is redundancy? i will try & answer what is qabbala?. because rusty's eyes have no redundancy as they slowly go blind. but i know how to make rusty laugh now: seeing eye dog!
