Phasing burns began today and will continue until we make our lunar insertion burn in 2 weeks time. We are cycling through our collection of EHEs using a different set each burn. After 1 day of burns we have had no issues with any of the EHEs.

These phasing burns are a practice of sorts for the burns that will be made by SSTV-02 when it arrives at Pluto after a 100 day transit from LEO and when it arrives back to the Earth-Moon system again after a 100 day transit from Pluto. The...

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...
