Fluid Loading:

Fluid loading water for one Entry opportunity should be pulled today. Fluid loading for a one orbit waveoff is not required to be pulled until waveoff is declared. Pulling water for fluid loading on EOM-1 will help maximize Supply Water quantities to support maximum deorbit landing opportunities.

The following is the prescription for fluid loading on entry day:

Initiate fluid loading at 1 hour before TIG. Consume 8 ounces of water or artificially sweetened (A/S) drink with two salt tablets, or 8 ounces of Chicken Consommé every 15 minutes. Fluid loading must be completed by Entry Interface (EI).
