After an illustrious 36 year career with NASA, Frank Bauer, KA3HDO, has retired from the agency.
The three-member Expedition 29 crew conducted a training exercise Friday in the unlikely event the International Space Station experienced a cabin pressure leak. The crew would stop all activity, place systems in a safe posture, locate and isolate the point of depressurization and if necessary enter a docked Soyuz spacecraft and evacuate the station. The simulated emergency takes place every 2.5 months ensuring the crew is familiar with emergency equipment and procedures.
Meanwhile, ongoing international research and systems maintenance continue to dominate the crew’s daily schedule.
