STORY WRITTEN FOR & USED WITH PERMISSIONPosted: November 24, 2007Space station commander Peggy Whitson and flight engineer Dan Tani began repressurizing the Quest airlock module at 11:54 a.m. today, officially closing out a "hugely successful" seven-hour four-minute spacewalk to finish connecting the new Harmony module to the lab's power and cooling systems. The work clears the way for launch of the shuttle Atlantis on Dec. 6 to deliver the European Space Agency's Columbus research module to the outpost.This was the third spacewalk in 15 days for the Expedition 16 crew, the 22nd EVA so far this year and the 99th devoted to station assembly and maintenance since construction began in 1998.During today's spacewalk, Whitson and Tani connected a second set of ammonia coolant supply and return lines to the new Harmony module; finished reconnecting the station-to-shuttle power transfer system that lets docked shuttles tap into the lab's solar power grid; and carried out a second inspection of the station's contaminated right-side solar array rotary joint.The astronauts also prepared the Harmony module's right side port for attachment of the Columbus research module next month while flight controllers at the Johnson Space Center in Houston worked through procedures to fully activate Harmony, checking out its electrical and cooling system connections. Activation had been planned for Sunday, but the work was moved up a day.Space station flight director Derek Hassmann described today's excursion as a "hugely successful spacewalk.""We were able to connect the node 2/Harmony module to the other string of the permanent ammonia cooling system," he said. "And because the crew got out the door early today as they always do, we were able to move early our node 2 final activations. Both node 2 thermal cooling systems are up and running inside the Harmony module, both MDMs, or computers, are powered up and both strings of power systems are up and running. That was an activity that wasn't scheduled until tomorrow. So once again, the crew has enabled us to get ahead."Today's spacewalk capped one of the busiest three weeks in station assembly.Harmony was launched to the station aboard the shuttle Discovery Oct. 23 and temporarily attached to the central Unity module's left-side port. After the shuttle departed, Whitson and flight engineer Yuri Malenchenko staged a spacewalk Nov. 9 to prepare the shuttle docking port on the front of the Destiny module for attachment to Harmony.The docking port, known as pressurized mating adapter No. 2, was successfully moved to Harmony, using the station's robot arm, on Nov. 12. Two days later, the Harmony/PMA-2 "stack" was moved to the front of Destiny and robotically bolted in place. During a spacewalk Tuesday, Whitson and Tani connected one of two ammonia coolant loops and, running ahead of schedule, completed all required electrical connections. They also hooked up part of the station-to-shuttle power transfer system that lets docked shuttles tap into the lab's power grid.During today's spacewalk, they finished the job and carried out the solar alpha rotary joint inspection to help engineers figure out what might be needed to fix it."When you think about it, with our three spacewalks, with our two significant robotics activities, what we've accomplished in the last 15 days is equivalent to a very ambitious shuttle assembly mission," Hassmann said. "What makes it special is we've accomplished everything I just described with just the three space station crew on board. ... So just an amazing accomplishment, it's a first for the international space station program."As for the starboard solar alpha rotary joint, or SARJ, Hassmann said "what they discovered was race ring damage and particulate that was consistent with the damage Dan Tani observed (late last month).""What I gathered from today, and of course the engineers are going to go off and talk about this in great detail, but basically the damage is significant and is widespread," Hassmann said. "I'm not qualified or ready to draw conclusions here today, but we know that the damage is consistent around the race ring. The crew did report the gear teeth themselves looked clean and did not appear to be damaged or rubbed in any off-nominal way, which I took to be good news."With Harmony now wired into the station's main power and cooling systems, NASA is clear to press ahead with launch of the shuttle Atlantis Dec. 6 on mission STS-122. Three spacewalks are planned for that mission, but it's not yet clear whether any additional SARJ work can be crammed into the already busy mission."What we've done is put the program in a better position on STS-122 to understand what they need to do in terms of either sARJ cleaning or SARJ repairs, etc.," Hassmann said. "So we've gathered additional data, verified the extent of the damage and now the folks have some work to do to quantify and plan exactly what they're going to do to address the SARJ issues on their mission."

I couldn't have asked for more." ESA astronaut Christer Fuglesang recently spoke about his Celsius Mission.On Friday 22 December 2006, Fuglesang, the first Swedish astronaut in space, returned to Earth with Space Shuttle Discovery with the rest of the STS-116 crew at the end of the 13-day mission to the International Space Station. During the STS-116 mission Fuglesang participated in three Extra Vehicular Activities (EVAs), or spacewalks, to continue assembly work on the outside of the Station. "I enjoyed every minute of it. I am very grateful to everyone who helped me to get there. In particular everyone at ESA, there are a lot of people who have supported me for many years." What was it like to be inside the Shuttle for the launch?"The launch was a real highlight! I was never really nervous, which did kind of surprise me. I didn't really dare to believe that we were really going because of the weather. The launch can also be scrubbed just one second before take-off, because of some technical problem. Until the big solid boosters are lit and you start to move, you never know. Once we left, it was of course a wonderful feeling - 'Yes! We are really going!' When we got into space - everyone was shouting and laughing." What was it like to see the ISS for the first time?"First there was just a really big bright star - when it came closer and you could see the details, it was big and beautiful. When you get close to dock, it's really big!" What was it like when you first entered the Station?"You enter into the lab - it is such a big space that you can be in the middle and not be able to touch anything. You feel a bit dizzy for the first minutes, when you have been used to the Shuttle where there is less space." Can you describe what it was like when you first stepped out of the Airlock for the first spacewalk?"It was different than planned! We had a very well choreographed plan for the way everything was supposed to be done. When Beamer [Robert Curbeam] egressed, he managed somehow to get a door open where the hand control of the SAFER [spacewalk backpack] is. So suddenly we had a new problem that needed to be solved. I actually had to go out the Airlock to try to fix this - it wasn't something we had trained in the pool, so I wasn't sure that I would be able to. But it worked out, and it gave me self-confidence for the rest." "It is a wonderful view when you are out there, and you can see the Earth and see the big Station. Translating along the truss, I enjoyed that a lot. You can just give yourself a little push and you float a few metres without touching anything." How did you feel at the end of the second spacewalk, when you had to return inside?"I felt a little bit sad. Particularly because we had resources to stay out for another hour and I was hoping they would come up with something else for us to do - but no one said anything. I tried to hang outside there for as long as I could before we had to go inside. I was very pleased when I got to do the third one!" You trained extensively for this mission, was there still anything that surprised you?"Something that was complicated was to go to the toilet... particularly what the Americans call 'number 2s'. Due to weightlessness the intestines are not the normal way, so you have to work really hard to get things going. It can get quite uncomfortable." Did you get much of an opportunity to look down at Earth, and what where the most impressive things that you saw?"I didn't have as much opportunity as I would have liked to, we were very, very busy. After undocking we started to get a bit more time. The orientation of the Shuttle meant we also got a better view. I was particularly please the first time I saw Sweden. We also saw the Aurora over Sweden - that was beautiful." "One of the best passes though was the very last day. It was night-time over Europe. We came in over Ireland, over England; I could see London. You could clearly see the Netherlands because there was so much light. Then I saw all of the Scandinavian countries, even the southern coast of Norway - I could see clouds covering Oslo which were lit up. I could see up to the middle of Sweden and Finland - Helsinki. On the opposite side of the gulf, Tallinn and St Petersburg. It is just like flying over a map. The light tells you where the cities are, and then just the complete darkness over the water - it was a beautiful pass." What have you been doing since the landing?"I had to go into NASA on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for data taking for some of the experiments - and then on the 26th we had a big medical exam. On 27 December we started with meetings to prepare for the debriefings and the presentations which we have to start giving very soon. I had just four days off over the New Year. Since then we've been in daily debriefings. I've just come back from EAC [ESA's European Astronaut Centre, in Cologne, Germany] where we had debriefings."What kind of things do you report back on during the debriefings?"Anything from minor technical details which didn't work very well - for example, a camera that was lost during one of the EVAs because of a screw that wasn't really working properly. Through to the overall message for us - we thought there was excellent team work, which helped to make this mission such a success. There was a really good connection between us and the ground crew - they trusted us and we trusted them. It was like we were not only their prolonged arm, but also kind of a prolonged brain to help to give inputs." How was your re-adaptation to gravity when you came back?"My balance was very affected. It felt a bit like you had been drinking heavily. But it came back fairly quickly. On the second day it was barely noticeable, and by the third day it was completely back. The first time I went jogging, five days after we returned, I got a lot more muscle soreness than I would usually get for such a short run." When does your mission completely come to an end?"I will be on the road for at least for half of the time through to April. We are going to visit all the NASA centres with the crew. We are making a crew trip to Europe - the highlights being Scandinavia, EAC and to ESTEC. There are a few things still for the experiments - taking post-flight data - I will be finished with them in another couple of months." Did you expect that Sweden would be enthusiastic about your flight?"Two months before the launch I saw how it was building up, so I did expect some interest - but I never imagined that it would be to that extent. When we had an in-flight call and it was both the Crown Princess and the Deputy Prime Minister there, it was really nice!" Do you have any longer-term plans as an astronaut?"I will spend a couple of months in Europe this summer, partly working at EAC. Then I will be back here in Houston in the autumn and I hope to get another assignment with the Shuttle. I would like to do a long-duration mission."

I dreamed that I was inside a
I dreamed that I was inside a library or some kind of public building where they had forgotten to take down the Christmas decorations and that had a major malfunction and all the maintenance peeps were running around dismantling things and trying to fix the problem. It was hot in there and there was an auditorium and I was under the stage looking out and I thought "They shoulda made this bigger for traveling shows." And then all of the sudden I found myself at an outdoor Indian history experience. It was real hilly and muddy and you could walk along a trail and read interpretative displays about Native American live. And my old boss from the AJC was there (I'm pretty sure) and she was going to take us all out to eat a Mexican dinner. But we had to wait for them to fix the problem. So I waited and walked around reading the history displays and before I knew it the others had left and I was there by myself. I asked "what about lunch?" And somebody said, "We couldn't find you so they left and nobody was hungry anyways." But I was still hungry and it made me kinda mad and my feelings were hurt. I walked out to the parking area which was a big muddy hill and there were only two cars left and I didn't recognize mine, but there was one parked way over by the Dairy Queen that could have been mine. I wasn't sure but drove away in it anyways
I dreamed I had a missed call
I deamed tht pipes on my wall
I deamed tht pipes on my wall in my apartment burst and water flooded and soaked my furniture. I called the maintenance department for help and they came and took my furniture away but did not do anything about the flood or plumbing. My mother came over with some gadget to chop up salad while some neighbors watched with amazement, and I dressed up like this girl, and I was with some man, and don't know why, he was kind of odd and he had a young son.
As a school principal, I am sitting
As a school principal, I am sitting in my office with a group of people discussing work issues. Look out the window and see a tornado coming, we all brace for the impact. No one is hurt and all go outside to view fields burning.When I come in, one of my teachers introduces me to our new vice principal, who is actually our maintenance man.
Brittany and I were still in the
Brittany and I were still in the ban or a group much like that. And we went on a field trip to somewhere that I know by don't remember. It was like a very tall building that had an observation area. The area consisted of only a guardrail to keep us in one place. But this observation deck was very full and a lot of us wanted to get to this open deck on the other side. But the only way was to go on the outside of the guard rail. So we each slowly got on the outside and walked along only a few inch ledge. I looked down a few times and it would be a very long drop!! Brittany had gone before me and a girl about our age went inbeween us. But anyway when I went back onto the safe side of the guard rail I was on top of it trying to keep my balance and not fall the wrong way, but when I was balancing this little boy from another country gave me a kiss on the cheek. And I thanked him for the reassuring kiss. It helped me get over. (it wasn't a gay kiss but just a I don't want u to die, and over in Europe they do that all the time). Once I was finally on the safe side I found Brittany along the railing and I found the girl that had gotten between us and she looked and me and asked if I was going out with Brittany, and I said yes, she responded with asking me if I wanted to Stand next to her. I was like yes! Of course!! Thank you! So after we had been standing there for awhile, for some reason I had a plum seed in my mouth. I looked down and we were over a variation of the Hershey water park. So I spit my seed out in an area that there was no water and no people. The wind took it another way and it hit the concrete bounced back up and hit a metal roof of a small maintenance shed, and then went over into the water. Brittany the girl and I were like aww man!!!!! After alittle but longer I got tackled by a girl. I was to the ground with her on top almost wrestling me. My hand was on her face, when I realized it was Tara. Haha I was like Ara??? (mumbled Tara) she was like nope. While we were doing that the girl that was in between us was like are u sure you two are going out (brittAny and me). Brittany responded with , yup we are but that is y sister haha and they just goofing off or something. And we were haha like we do, and finally I was like this is Tara!! Haha Than I woke up with my hand on my shoulder thinking it was Tara's face. So I went back to sleep and I don't remember much but I remember being with Brittany :D Awkward part that I remember: I remembered part of my earlier dream where brittany aNd i were cuddling and than one thing led to another and we were both really turned on, I was to the point where I was ready to explode if you know what I mean. And than u suggested that your hand would go down there and help out. But I was like no, please dont! Mainly cause I didn't want a mess to clean up.
Two nites in a row I have
Two nites in a row I have dreamed of a local recreational area where I used to live. It is still a special place to me. The first nite the dream was of me boarding a maintenance boat to watch workers diving into the large lake at the park. (The lake there is not big enough for freighters). During the dream I saw a hurricane in the distance. It later turned in a hurricane of fire. The second night I dreamed I was taking a bus load of kids from the church to the same park for a cookout. We had to cross an ocean to get to it. We got close enuff to see the park but instead stopped at an interestat rest area where it was raining very hard. I stayed outside in the rain to cookout while everyone else stayed inside. It was so crowded I was approached to fight by another guy and none of the kids would come outside to get the food when it was finished. Help. I need to know what all this means
I dreamt that I was in nazi
I dreamt that I was in nazi Germany. It wasn\'t in a concentration camp, but a sort of undercover Market, there were many rooms, made out of concrete, the Market was quite vast. I was there, but was not involved in the things that were happening. People were being herded into these rooms, and being exterminated.it was quite horrific, but it did not seem like a nightmare. Eventually, I was observing 3 men who were English being sent to England, in a lorry , to be involved in some vital maintenance work, but I don\'t know what it was. The era was in the forties, and the men did their work, they met up with their families, and various scenarios occurred. The men had to go back to Nazi Germany , and set off in the lorry.
