SSTV-01 has docked with the Lunar Station and this marks the official end of Mission #1.

Current Plans are to spend the next 3 months at the Lunar Station bringing up the cargo for our next mission to Saturn's moon Titan. The mission will start with a 100 day transit directly from Lunar orbit with a slingshot around the Earth. The assembly crew will be given a 150 day window to bring the Titan Station up to initial occupancy capability, and then a 100 day transit back to the Lunar...

MCC #8 was performed with no issues 8 hours before LOI. The LOI burn as well as the inclination matching burn were both performed with no issues. We now have a 4 orbit wait to catch up to the Lunar Station at which point we will match orbits. The final orbit matching burn will occur just as the Lunar Station enters daylight so we will close and dock immediately following the orbit matching burn.

All boards are green at this time.

Remaining mission timeline is as follows:...

MCC #7 was performed with no flags. MCC #8 will be delayed until we are nearly to the Moon to reduce the burn time of LOI. It is expected to take us 2 or less orbits of the Moon before we are station keeping with the Lunar Station. We will then wait until daylight before performing our final docking.

All boards are green at this time.

Remaining mission timeline is as follows:
  • T+397 days MCC #8
  • T+398 days LOI and docking with lunar station and official end to Mission

12 hours before our scheduled undocking with the ISS, one of our shut down power plants sent a massive short through the entire electrical system. As we were getting ready to undock and resume our mission to the Lunar Station, many modules and systems were powered at that time. A quick shutdown of all our systems and a return to external ISS power was required. After several days of testing to make sure nothing was damaged, and a replacement of the power plant that shorted out via an extra flown...

All boards are now green after completion of the testing and calibration session over the last 2 weeks. All our supplies have been topped off and the new XR5 has docked with our port side docking port. we are preparing to cast off the ISS sometime tomorrow morning and depart for the Lunar Station and the completion of SSTV-01 Mission #1. We will be using 8 of the EHEs (6 forward, 2 aft) for our TLI burn, 4 (2 forward, 2 aft) for each of the MCC's planned for our Earth to Moon trip, and 6 (4 forward,...
