Martedi’ 5 Dicembre avremo al MARS un collegamento in diretta (vedi email di annuncio allegata) con l’astronauta ESA Thomas Reiter per le attività di prepacking relative al payload ALTCRISS. Cio’ nell’ambito della nostra attività di User Support Operation Center (USOC) e Facility Responsible Center (FRC) per ESA.
Vi terro’ informati sull’evento.
There might be the possibility that the USOCs can talk to Thomas Reiter during the pre-packing activities next week.
The activities currently planned for XFER-STS-PREPACK are Mo GMT 338 17:15 - 18:30 but no S-Band shown in OSTPV, Tu GMT 339 17:10 – 18:25. Hopefully we get the confirmation for Tue.
The USOCs should be prepared to answer questions on the packing activity but more important would be that they could ask Thomas some specific/general information about their experiments (e.g. for lessons learned and maybe take the opportunity to thank him for the efficient work he has done).
Our Ops Manager R. Ewald negotiated this with MCC-M.
I hope for the help of the GSOC GC team to talk to me on the technical details, how we can connect the USOCs to S/G1 talk (maybe via telephon patch). When I have more information about this and also the confirmation from MCC-M I will write again.
So now the most important for you is to let me know, whether you can support such an event from your USOC and who will talk.
Thanks very much for now, ESA OPS / Berti
