Unpacking day 9 (bis): Not all the donuts are with a hole…

Man, the ASM seemed to work really well and the AO group continue testing the system all the day BUT at a certain point the system started whistling!!! All the actuators were disabled, the system powered off and the shell was safe against the reference body but it was still whistling at about 2 Khz!!!!

Microgate people found the problem on the TSS (Thin shell Safety System): a single crate, after a while, was not applying constantly the wind safety current and caused the shell oscillation

That crate was oscillating with few [nm] RMS movements:

On the Unpacking day 10 Microgate people will address the problem.

Sadly, Microgate people were forced to delay their flights…

…but we are happy to work again with them!
