ISS015-E-12943 (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, repairs a 4-by-6-inch section of a thermal blanket on Atlantis' port orbital maneuvering system (OMS) pod that was damaged during the shuttle's climb to orbit last week. 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.
