A Near-Death Experience: Saving the CloudSat Spacecraft from a Severe Battery Anomaly
A battery anomaly in April 2011 drove the CloudSat spacecraft into its lowest-level of fault protection. This is a story of the technical challenges of the recovery and also of the human aspects of a long, protracted recovery effort. It is a story of team will-power, talent and perseverance, with the support of JPL and NASA management and not a small measure of luck. Learn how “DO-Op Rocks” became the CloudSat team mantra!
