Mir Status Report 16 September 1997

Date: Tuesday, September 16, 1997 // MD 42/124

Mir Station System/Subsystem Activities -- Early this morning thruster-only attitude control was successfully regained. The gyrodynes are expected to be spun up overnight.

The external cooling loop on the base block (KOH-1N) remains off to preclude condensate gathering on the Antares transmitter coldplate. Elektron remains off as well. Condensate recovery (SRV-K), urine recovery (SRV-U), and Vozdukh are all on. Kvant-2 is powering up and its batteries are being charged.

The crew also spent time today cleaning up the worksite in the area of loop VGK in Kvant-1. Several weeks ago, leak repairs were performed in this area and today the crew finally cleaned up the work area. There are no leaks.
