[i]GRISSOM: The second OAMS burn went without incident. I couldn't hear the forward-firing thrusters, which is disconcerting because you do hear the attitude thrusters. The attitude thrusters sound very similar to those that we experienced in the simulator. Perhaps not quite as loud, but you definitely can hear them. If the attitude thrusters are not firing, you think you've stopped translating. You can tell you're still translating by the debris drifting forward or aft in the cockpit. During this maneuver, I noticed a bolt plastered against the instrument panel. We drove the IVI's down to zero and stopped on John's time hack. We were still having our troubles with the scanners and with the yaw drift.
Shortly thereafter, John unstowed the meal and reached over and asked me if I wanted a bite. He handed me a corned beef sandwich. I took one bite, it tasted pretty good, but it started to crumble and float around the cockpit, so I shoved it in my left knee pocket. John started his food and waste evaluation, and I ran the platform alignment check.[/i] [/B][/QUOTE]
