    Test Notes from Engineering

    • ACIS is happy, give or take our (continuing) lack of knowledge as to why the door failed to open at the Observatory-level TV.
    • The fuse/solder joint failure on the PSMC DA Heater B input is stable and open.
    • Boards in the CTU and IU had suspect PC Boards and so have been replaced.

      Anomalies, Major and Minor:

      • As we come in the door at KSC, the following discrepencies exist:
