The Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) successfully completed the aliveness test, and the functional test is well underway with no anomalies. The last step of the SFT will be to configure ACS for launch.

The Nicmos Cooling System's (NCS) final circulator loop clean up was completed as planned. All NCS environmental testing and has been completed and all of the hardware will be turned over to the HST Integration and Test team for final verification testing.

Preparations for Cargo Integration Test Equipment (CITE) testing are continuing. The VPF canister was loaded with the Second Axial Carrier (SAC), Flight Support System (FSS) and Multi-Use Lightweight Equipment (MULE) carriers the previous day. The carriers were then transferred to the CITE stand.

All SM3B tools were delivered to KSC for final stowage in the Orbiter Payload Bay for the Crew Equipment Interface Test.

The first 3 days of Servicing Mission 3B (SM3B) crew training runs were completed during Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL) 01.12. PCU part-tasks and solar array change outs were conducted.
