JEM Small Satellite Orbital Deployer-19: A crewmember took photos of the deployed satellite from JEM Launcher 1.

The JEM Small Satellite Orbital Deployer provides a novel, safe, and small satellite launching capability to the ISS. The J-SSOD is a unique satellite launcher, handled by the Japanese Experiment Module Remote Manipulator System, which provides containment and deployment mechanisms for several individual small satellites.

LAB1D2 Joint Station Lan Router Cable Connections: Today, the crew performed the JSL cable connections for the newly installed router in LAB1D2.

The crew ran into some trouble while performing the cable connections but were able to work through the issues and complete the activity.

T2 Rack Center and Crewed ACO: After discovering that three of the T2 Snubbers were out of alignment yesterday, today the crew centered the rack and reperformed the crewed ACO. Both activities went nominally, and the crew took pictures and video for ground teams to review.

Due to the JSL outage associated with the JSL Ethernet Connections, the crew cannot downlink the pictures or video until after the activity is completed.

The crew used one of the camcorders onboard to give ground teams a preliminary look at the T2 Snubbers.

Node 3 Fwd 3 IMV Screen R&R: After the crew inspected the Node 3 Fwd 3 IMV screen, ground teams decided to schedule an R&R. The crew replaced the IMV screen with a new 3D printed screen that will allow for better airflow and easier cleaning.
