Update in from ESA’s Mike Steinkopf at ATV-CC

Just to let you know: crew have performed the second Brine transfer from the ISS’s Advanced Recycle Filter Tank (ARFTA) to ATV-3’s No. 2 tank, followed by a urine transfer of 8 standard EDV-SV vessels into the same ATV tank.

This makes, so far, 218 litres of liquid waste taken on board into the ATV No. 2 tank. Future planned liquid waste transfers (from 5 to 6 EDV containers) will be transferred into the No. 3 tank to balance the load and maintain ATV’s centre of mass (C of M).

PS: The O2 transfer last Friday was successful!
