MCC #9 was performed with no flags.

Due to our high approach speed to the Earth-Moon system, we will begin 12 days of phasing burns to slow our closest approach speed down while maintaining our correct trajectory to arrive at the Lunar Station in 20 days. Phasing burns are usually 5-10 minutes in duration at 1-1.5 g's followed by an hour or 2 of calculations before the next burn is performed. As the burn calculations are very straight forward, we will continue our existing duty cycles...

MCC #8 was performed 2 days ago. Several component racks came loose in one of the Hydroponics Modules which caused some damage during the burn. No hull punctures were discovered, but the damaged module had to be taken offline for 2 days while repairs were performed. Module is now back up and working although a significant amount of our repair supplies were consumed.

As the SSTV series of vehicles are designed to be self sufficient on consumables, there is not a lot of excess consumable...

11/20 This was my last solo cross-country, destination KCUL. The plan was simple, the flight straightforward - take off & fly to KCUL, getting flight following from KEVV & transitioning the Charlie airspace, and do the same on the way back to KHNB, which if the winds were as forecast and close to what DUATS was estimating, should put me just over the 1.9 hours of solo time I needed.

Well, I could make this a long post about every detail of the flight, but honestly it was...
