ISS015-E-12938 (15 June 2007) --- Anchored to a foot restraint on Space Shuttle Atlantis' remote manipulator system (RMS) robotic arm, astronaut John "Danny" Olivas, STS-117 mission specialist, moves toward Atlantis' port orbital maneuvering system (OMS) pod that was damaged during the shuttle's climb to orbit. During the repair, Olivas pushed the turned up portion of the thermal blanket back into position, used a medical stapler to secure the layers of the blanket, and pinned it in place against adjacent thermal tile.

ISS015-E-12253 (15 June 2007) --- The helmet visor of astronaut John "Danny" Olivas, STS-117 mission specialist, serves as an easel of sorts as it reflects a pictorial account of a portion of a very busy session of extravehicular activity (EVA) on June 15. Olivas, who took the photo, spent two hours of an overall 7 hour, 58 minute spacewalk stapling and pinning down a piece of thermal blanket on one of Atlantis' orbital maneuvering system pods (reflected in his visor). The 4-by-6-inch corner of the blanket peeled up during the shuttle's launch last week.
