Removal of the Exposed Pallet (EP) from Kibo's Exposed Facility Begins
At 1:19 p.m. on August 10, removal operations of the Exposed Pallet (EP) which has been attached to the Kibo's Exposed Facility (EF) began.
Two payloads, Japanese MCE and NASA's SCAN Testbed temporarily mounted on the EP were each transfered and installed on the ISS, and the EP is empty now.
After removing the EP from the EF by the JEM Remote Manipulator System (JEMRMS), the EP will be handed off to the station's robotic arm (Space Station Remote Manipulator System: SSRMS). Then, the SSRMS will stow the EP into the KOUNOTORI's Unpressurized Logistics Carrier (ULC), which is scheduled to end around 8:45 p.m. on the same day.
