Got to open the payload bay doors and deploy the KU Band antenna on Endeavour Friday then supported radiator inspections until 3 a.m. Found a hole in the L/H 4 radiator that goes all the way through it (it is approx. .75 in thick) with a diameter of .218 in. Came very close to a freon line– if it would have hit, she would have lost one of two freon loops that supply cooling for the vehicle and that would have caused an abrupt end of mission scenario with an early landing. Too early to tell if it was orbital debris or a meteorite. Will post pic when I get it.
