JSC2003-E-61162 (23 October 2003) --- EVA Operations Engineer Dana Weigel participates in a suited one-g evaluation of tile repair techniques in the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility at Johnson Space Center (JSC). The board is a simulated section of tile, with dense yellow foam as a substitute for the tiles. The test is part of the effort to approximate some of the conditions of an in-space extravehicular activity (EVA) that might be called upon to repair damaged thermal tiles on a space shuttle.
