I repeat that reading is above normal range.” (LS Eng will be silent for 6 seconds)Commander, will we have to scrub our mission?LS Engineer – “ No, we can confirm that the safety measures you developed are acceptable. When you return to the spacecraft, the Life support team must change the air filter immediately. I repeat – change the filter immediately. It is also very important that you check the mass of the filter every 15 minutes. Do you copy,? Over.” (LS Eng will be silent for 12 seconds)We copy and thank you for your assistance.
