WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS FOR WEEK ENDING 22 NOVEMBER 2002:
SPACE VEHICLE MOVED INTO THERMAL VACUUM CHAMBER
The GP-B team has moved the space vehicle into the thermal vacuum chamber and will close the chamber door within the next few days. All plumbing and electrical GSE have been configured. The team successfully completed the pre-thermal vacuum functional A/B tests and the GMA gas flow/regulator calibration tests. During the past week the MOC started shadowing some POD G/space vehicle activities.
