Replacement of Onboard ISS Ham Equipment, Presenter: F. Bauer/S. Samburov

ARISS

Because it is difficult to schedule maintenance and repair onboard the ISS, Sergey has decided to fly ISS Ham backup equipment. This hardware includes the backup Kenwood D700, SSTV and cables. The equipment is at Baikonur and will launch on the next Progress on September 12. He will not be able to bring back the current onboard equipment. The software on the D700 is thought to be Rev F, well below the current Rev I version. There are still many concerns regarding this swap-out approach by several members of the ARISS international team. It needs to be better coordinated within the team.

Challenger Learning Center of Lucas County,Oregon, Ohio, USA, Mon (Sep 01) at 15:22 UTC

ARISS

An International Space Station Expedition 17 ARISS school contact has been planned with participants from the Challenger Learning Center of Lucas County, Oregon, Ohio, on 01 September. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 1522 UTC.

The contact will be a direct between stations NA1SS and KB9UPS. The contact should be audible over eastern North America. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The participants are expected to conduct the conversation in English.

Using space as a theme and the power of simulations as a teaching tool, Challenger Center programs create an exciting and cooperative learning environment that exposes students to the challenges and successes of teamwork, problem solving, communication, and decision-making. These positive learning experiences raise students' expectations of success, foster in them a long-term interest in math, science, and technology and motivate them to pursue careers in these fields.

Station Performs Maneuver; Science and Cargo Transfer Continues

ISS Status Report

Two of the four of the Jules Verne Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) engines fired for five minutes and two seconds Wednesday to avoid any possibility of the International Space Station coming too close to a spent Russian rocket. The successful maneuver began about 12:10 p.m. EDT.

Meanwhile, the Expedition 17 crew members aboard the station worked with science experiments and continued the transfer of cargo.

Flight Engineer Oleg Kononenko conducted a status check on the PLANTS-2 experiment that researches the growth and development of plants in microgravity. He'd harvested and replanted in that experiment on Monday.
