ISS Tasks Ahead

NASA ISS On-Orbit Status 31 October 2007

"The IMMT (ISS Mission Management Team) this morning deferred EVA-4 from tomorrow to Friday (11/2). Top priority on board & ground has been re-directed from inspecting the Stbd SARJ (Solar Alpha Rotary Joint) to fixing the ripped P6 4B Solar Array Wing (SAW) blanket as best as can be done, as long as the Discovery crews are on ISS. EVA-5 (Whitson/Malenchenko) may become a Stage EVA. Four special teams (Damage/root cause, EVA Assessment, Solar array constraints, Stage ops assessment) have been designated to study the situation and develop a new EVA-4 timeline for alleviating the current structurally unsound SAW condition. Stbd SARJ meanwhile remains in Directed (fixed) Position, out of Autotrack."
