STS-127: Flight Day 4
Late last night we finished the review images for any damage to Endeavour's heatshield. Aside from those damages that we detected during ascent, the vehicle was in pretty clean condition. Today there will be preparing charts and attend a series of meetings to discuss the damages we did find so they can be cleared for reentry. This involves putting charts together that include the dimensions, expected heating, etc. and a lot of discussion with the analysts.
