On Monday, January 11, 1999, Removal of Discovery's caution and
warning box is complete. The orbiter's ammonia controller has been
replaced and the forward reaction control system (FRCS) has arrived in
the OPF for installation tomorrow. Last week, radiator functional
tests and inspections revealed a probable micrometeroid ding on a
portion of the radiator and engineering evaluation is now under way.
Main propulsion system functional tests are ongoing and corrosion
control modifications on the engine heat shields continue.
Replacement of Discovery's window No. 1 is complete and window No. 7
replacement is in work today. Workers will evaluate window No. 5 this
week. (Reference KSC Shuttle Status 1/11/1999)
