Technical Malfunction on @ATLANTIS. #MissionTwo

Rodney McKay PhD PhD @JSCFlightDirector
@ZelenkaJSC Where the hell are you?

R. Zelenka @ZelenkaJSC
@JSCFlightDirector On my way. #CallMe


Was anyone else just watching NASA TV? Did a fucking meteor just hit the space station?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir @NASADirector
We are working to determine the reason for @ATLANTIS' loss of signal. Please direct all questions to @NASAMedia.

Turn off the data update auto-post!

Rodney McKay PhD PhD @JSCFlightDirector
@ChucktheCampbell @CarterofABYDOS Phones. Answer. Now.


5:44am – Source states that many of NASA's employees are being called in. This includes former astronauts of the ABYDOS/COMMAND Missions, Dr. Samantha Carter and Colonel Jonathan O'Neill, Ret.

5:18am – We are hearing from a source within Mission Control, whom asked not to be named, that following the Genii Meteor Shower, all transmissions between Earth and the ATLANTIS space station ceased. NASA is unsure at this time whether the station is having a technical malfunction or if the station incurred damage during the latter part of the shower.

Samantha Carter, Astra @CarterofABYDOS
@JacksonJPL Is Jack with you?

JPL Linguistics @JacksonJPL
@CarterofABYDOS Just got to his house. Will have him in front of a camera ASAP.

Me: You know they're probably just sensationalizing this, right?
Dad: Go away and let me be anxious in peace.

@CaribbeanOrphan @ATLANTIS was built to take quite a bit of abuse from space debris, so our focus is on a technical failure, not structural.

NASA MediaTalk @NASAMedia
@DragonFyre2029 2 satellites are always watching @ATLANTIS. 1 is being moved to give us a better view of the radio transmitters on bow.


9:01am – A press conference to be held at 10am this morning with Director of NASA Dr. Elizabeth Weir, Flight Director Radek Zelenka, and the Instrumentation and Communications Officer (INCO) Walter Harriman.

8:56am – Per our source, the Oracle satellite has been moved into position and begun sending images back to Mission Control in Houston. There is damage to ATLANTIS of a severe nature, but the source states that is not considered catastrophic.

JACK @JONeillAstronut
@JSCFlightDirector You're gonna want to see this.

Rodney McKay PhD PhD @JSCFlightDirector
@JONeillAstronut Delete that before the internet is at Elizabeth's door.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir @NASADirector
@JSCFlightDirector @JONeillAstronut They're already here. Please use the internal message system until after 10am.

JACK @JONeillAstronut
@NASADirector @JSCFlightDirector Wilco.

Guysguysguys, go check out the NASA App! The Oracle satellite was pointed toward the Pegasus Dwarf Irregular Galaxy and automatically posted any picture taken and here's the thing: NASA didn't turn off that feature when they transferred it to look at ATLANTIS! Fresh pics of the station and someone's doing an EVA!

#NASA FTW #There's an app for that #Who wants to bet that it's Sheppard?

MCKAY (09:41:03): What do they have up there to patch a hole 5m x 2m?
SILER (09:41:31): Well, they've got sheet metal and parts for the Lagrangian Point satellite in the payload.
MCKAY (09:41:50): Sheet metal. Great, they're going to put a bandaid on a sucking wound.
SILER (09:42:17): Sucking wound is the least of their issues if they don't get their comms back.
MCKAY (09:42:42): Thank you for that moronic and unnecessary reminder.
SILER (09:43:00): You're welcome.


11:25am – Mission Control source states that confirmation has been made: a member of the crew is attempting repairs to the damaged section of ATLANTIS.

10:41am – The press briefing with the Director of NASA ended minutes ago. Dr. Elizabeth Weir was firm that she does not think this event is anything like the ARCTURUS disaster, and expects that NASA will find some way to contact the astronauts within the next few hours.

When asked if her statement meant that they had confirmation that the ATLANTIS crew was alive, she replied, “We have no expectation that the damage to the bow in anyway harmed them. ATLANTIS' life support system has a lockdown procedure in place that would have sealed the pertainent airlocks the moment it detected a decompression event.”

She did not comment on the NASA App photos.

10:29am – The NASA app, which until moments ago, has been updating with photos taken of the crippled space station. Some believe a small white figure in one photo could be Commander John Sheppard doing an EVA of the damage.

This was perfect! I loved how everyone weighed in, the way the tension was built, the stress and also the humor, John's humor.

How do you know much about NASA????

I wish I could say something cool like, "Wanna visit JSC? I've got an in, winkwink," but it's actually a combination of Aspergers, coming from a science nerd family where we watched NASA docus and Science channels instead of Saturday morning cartoons, and a lifelong wish to be an astronaut that I will never be able to attain. Books, documentaries, YouTube... I sort of just feed the love with those.

Now I feel like a creepy obsessive. *hides under rock*

*peeks out* And thank you! I'm really in love with this universe and I'm ecstatic that other people are enjoying it.

I think it's super awesome that you are combining something IRL you love with fandom. The verisimilitude is pretty damn awesome, and gives the 'verse a great touch. Go you! Not creepy at all :)

Wow, edge-of-the-seat stuff right there! Love the way you told this part of the story, with all the panic and the public watching every move. Laughed at John finally weighing in and Rodney being all, "Oh, you're alive. I'm hungry." ::grins::

Love this series so much!!
aivix: NASAaivix on March 20th, 2016 09:49 pm (UTC)
I am having way too much fun with this series, LOL! Especially John being a goofy dork. Thank you!
