[b]Failed pump module extracted from station's truss[/b]
Having removed the four coolant lines, five electrical and data cables and four bolts holding it in place, and having installed (with a bit of trouble) an adjustable grapple bar, Doug Wheelock, riding the robotic arm, and Tracy Caldwell Dyson have extracted the failed ammonia pump module from the station's truss and are moving it to a payload bracket on the mobile base system where it be stored.
The failed pump module, which measures 69 by 50 by 36 inches and has a mass of about 780 pounds, will remain on the bracket for the foreseeable future, until plans are made to move it or return it to Earth for analysis.
