2008-02-03 - ISS repairs solar motorISS astronauts repair solar array motor

Reparaturen an der Raumstation<br /> Expedition 16 Commander Peggy Whitson and Flight Engineer Dan Tani installed a new Bearing Motor Roll Ring Module (BMRRM) Wednesday during a 7-hour and 10-minute spacewalk that concluded at 12:06 p.m. EST.

The spacewalkers removed and replaced a BMRRM that experienced electrical failures in early December. The BMRRM, or "broom", drives the solar arrays as they tilt towards the sun maximizing power generation. On Thursday morning the Electrical Systems Officer reported the new BMRRM is functioning perfectly.
Additionally, Space Station managers met Thursday about the readiness of Jules Verne, the European Space Agency's (ESA) Automated Transfer Vehicle. Jules Verne is scheduled for launch from Kourou, French Guiana, sometime between Feb. 22 and Mar. 9. A launch date for the maiden flight of the new cargo ship is expected to be selected by ESA Director General Jean-Jacques Dordain on Feb. 6.
