Spacewalk Tasks Rearranged Due To Communication Loss

Mission Control has informed the spacewalkers that they will not be in communication for about 30 minutes. This is due to the temporary loss of one of the Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS) because of weather in White Sands, New Mexico. STS-128 mission specialist and intravehicular officer Patrick Forrester will be communicating with the spacewalkers. A couple of tasks have been rearranged to accommodate the loss of signal.
