Debris Avoidance Maneuver (DAM): Ground teams evaluated tracking data yesterday and throughout the night for a possible conjunction with Object #38925. Due to inconsistent tracking on the object, a 32 second, .5m/sec. Service Module (SM) main engine DAM was performed at 5:56am CDT. To protect 56 Progress (56P) 4-orbit rendezvous today, the DAM was performed retrograde.

Conjunction with Object #38925 Status: Ground teams evaluated tracking data throughout the day for a possible conjunction with Object #38925. Because tracking on the object was inconsistent ground teams began planning for a Debris Avoidance Maneuver (DAM).

Today: 5 Progress (55P) Undock: 55P successfully undocked from the ISS at 4:44pm CDT. Progress will remain in orbit for the non-ISS-related "Radar-Progress" experiment. Final deorbit burn is planned for July 31 at 4:54pm CDT.

NASA ISS On-Orbit Status 18 July 2014

Today: Force Shoes: Flight Engineer (FE)-5 Wiseman conducted an Advanced Resistive Exercise Device (ARED) exercise session using Force Shoes which were calibrated during Treadmill 2 (T2) exercise last week. The data from the ARED exercise session will be used to measure the loads experienced during ARED exercise.

Today: Orbital-2 (Orb-2) Ingress: Following yesterday's successful capture and berthing of Cygnus, the crew completed vestibule outfitting, ingressed the vehicle, and began transferring cargo to ISS.
