NOTE: Post-landing inspections reveal Columbia to be in good shape. Because the orbiter's power reactant storage distribution system had to be vented before entering OPF bay 1, Columbia did not arrive in the facility until 2:40 a.m.
Draining of the orbiter's cryogenics is scheduled for tonight and removal of fuel cell No. 2 is slated for this weekend. The problem fuel cell will then be shipped to the vendor for inspection.
NOTE: Work to replace fuel cell No. 3 is complete and leak checks are in work. Technicians will retest the fuel cell later today. Installation of the actuator for Hatch D, which leads from the tunnel adapter to the Spacehab module, is in work today. Payload bay door closure is scheduled for Friday and preparations to move Atlantis into the VAB are underway. External tank and solid rocket booster close-out activities continue in preparation to be mated to Atlantis next week.
