Today I go 3D! Day will start with a class on the ISS 3D camcoder. I have no experience at all with such equipment, so I'm very much looking forward to it.
Then I will have an EVR refresher class. The acronym EVR refers to robotics operations in support of EVA activities: that's when we " fly" spacewalkers around Station on the the Canadarm2. This refresher is important, because tomorrow I will get operate the NBL robotic arm for the first time. Yes, there is actually a robotic arm in the pool!
Just to keep my head in the Crew Medical Officer world as well, I'll have a class later today on dental procedures that could be required onboard ISS.
I attach some pictures from our training in the Dome yesterday, where we got to practice our teamwork in monitoring the approach of Cygnus. We're all very excited about the first Cygnus flying to ISS next month!#SamLogbook +AstronautiNEWS
