Procedure in process - Team is still on the island

The problem has been fixed and team has started the operation to refill the LOX into the high-pressure tanks. The back-up LOX is stored in low-pressure tanks, so it needs to be pressurized.

Once it is in the pressurized tanks, they can then start refueling the rocket. Even though the rocket was full at countdown, refueling is necessary because of boil-off.

No status yet on timing.

Every minute counts as they race to stay within the launch window.

Digg It!
