STS-134 MCC Status Report #11 :: HOUSTON – Mission managers cleared Endeavour’s thermal protection system for re-entry after analysis of data and images from an early-morning focused robotic inspection of the tiles.
STS-134 MCC Status Report #13 :: HOUSTON – It turned into a long day for the Endeavour spacewalkers outside the International Space Station as they worked to complete all of the assigned maintenance tasks. Mission Specialists Andrew Feustel and Mike Fincke wrapped up their 8-hour, 7-minute spacewalk at 9:12 a.m. They topped off ammonia in a cooling loop, lubricated a solar array joint on the port truss and one of the hands on Dextre, one of the station’s Canadian robotic arms, and installed stowage beams near the middle of the main truss.
ISS On-Orbit Status 05/22/11 :: Mission ULF-6’s EVA-2 was completed successfully by EV1 Mike Fincke & EV2 Drew Feustel in 8h 7m, accomplishing all objectives. Beginning this morning at 2:05am EDT, the spacewalk ended at 10:12am. [EV1 & EV2 began their “campout” yesterday around noon in the U.S. Airlock (A/L) at ~11:51pm with hatch closure and depressurization of the Crewlock (CL) from 14.7 to 10.2 psi, followed by mask prebreathe (~11:51pm-12:56pm) and sleep from 1:26pm-9:26pm. After wake-up at nighttime and the usual hygiene break/with mask prebreathe for Spanky at 10:01pm-11:11am, the A/L hatch was closed again by Ron Garan & Mark Kelly for EVA preps in 10.2 psi (11:11am-12:41am), followed by EMU purge (12:41am-12:56am) and prebreathe in the EMUs (12:56am-1:46am). Afterwards, with CL depressurization and EV1/EV2 switching to suit power, EVA-2 began at 2:05am. The excursion lasted 8h 7m. It was the 6th longest EVA in history, the 116th EVA from the US Airlock, and the 157th EVA for ISS assembly & maintenance.
