HAZARD

The Importance of My Job

Congratulations, you have been chosen as the Hazard (HAZ) officer for this important mission. Your job is to monitor all potential dangers and threats to the Spacecraft and its crew by analyzing debris impact panels on board the Spacecraft.  

You will need to follow every step on this page, without skipping a single step. If you find at any point that the readings from the spacecraft are not safe, you must inform the crew! 

You will be communicating with other teams using the CHAT and your MICROPHONE.

When using CHAT you will see your messages and directions in Purple. Make sure you use the drop down menu to select the correct team you want to send the message to.  Once you have typed it in the CHAT, make sure to hit Enter so that the team receives it.

When using the MICROPHONE your directions and reading will be in Green .  Unmute your MICROPHONE, read your message and make sure you mute after.

RESEARCH

Follow these directions for researching DEBRIS IMPACT PANELS:

 

  1. Read the information about debris impact panels in the box labeled BACKGROUND.
BACKGROUND

Large-scale obstacles pose a potential danger to the Spacecraft and its crew. These obstacles include meteoroids and asteroids. To observe any potential dangers from these obstacles, the number of holes in each debris impact panel must be counted accurately. These fast moving objects around the Spacecraft could result in a higher total number of holes. With a higher total number of holes, the crew may be in danger. 

Below the list of steps there is a DEBRIS IMPACT DATA LOG for each debris impact panel onboard the Spacecraft. In each DEBRIS IMPACT DATA LOG, you will be recording information you collect from the Mission Commander.

2. Answer the DEBRIS IMPACT RESEARCH QUESTIONS below. Click “Submit” when you finish answering the questions.

      OPEN RESEARCH QUESTIONS

      DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #1

      Follow these directions for collecting data from DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #1:

      1. Read the information on safe debris impact panel readings by clicking on the box labeled SAFETY.

      SAFETY

      You will be receiving the total number of impact holes from each debris impact panel onboard the Spacecraft, with an example debris impact panel pictured below. The total number of holes will change based on the data sent to you by the Mission Commander. The following are the specific calculations you will need to perform to determine whether or not there is a HAZ emergency for the crew:

      1. 20 total impact holes per debris impact panel existed in the previous mission. Subtract the total number of holes from the previous mission from today’s data to see if there has been any significant changes. 

      2. If the difference of impact holes between today and the previous mission is fewer than 20, then the crew is safe from any imminent danger of large-scale obstacles.

      3. If the difference of impact holes between today and the previous mission is greater than 20, then there is an imminent danger of large-scale obstacles to the crew onboard the Spacecraft, and there is an emergency.

                                                                                                                                                       

      2. Locate the CHAT and send the following message to “COM”:

      The HAZ team has a message for the Mission Commander. Please check the number of holes in Debris Impact Panel #1 as soon as possible.

      3. Once the Mission Commander has given you the reading for Debris Impact Panel #1, type in the data in the DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #1 DATA LOG below. Be sure to click “Submit” after answering the questions.

      DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #1 ANALYSIS

      Follow these directions for analyzing the data collected for DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #1:

      1. Compare the reading for Debris Impact Panel #1 to your research to decide whether or not the crew faces any danger from large-scale obstacles.

      2. If an emergency is imminent, scroll down to the section that says “EMERGENCY”.

      3. If an emergency does not exist, find the MICROPHONE. Unmute and read the following message:

      This is the HAZ team. The reading for Debris Impact Panel #1 indicates that there is currently no imminent danger to the crew from large-scale obstacles.

      4. Mute the MICROPHONE and move on to DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #2.

      DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #2 

      Follow these directions for collecting data from DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #2:

      1. Find the MICROPHONE. Unmute and read the following message:

      This is the HAZ team. Please check the number of holes in Debris Impact Panel #2 as soon as possible.

      2. Mute the MICROPHONE.

      3. Once the Mission Commander has given you the reading for Debris Impact Panel #2, type in the data in the DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #2 DATA LOG below. Be sure to click “Submit” after answering the questions.

      DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #2 ANALYSIS 

      Follow these directions for analyzing the data collected for DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #2:

      1. Compare the reading for Debris Impact Panel #2 to your research to decide whether or not the crew faces any danger from large-scale obstacles.

      2. If an emergency is imminent, scroll down to the section that says “EMERGENCY”.

      3. If an emergency does not exist, find the MICROPHONE, unmute and read the following message:

      This is the HAZ team. The reading for Debris Impact Panel #2 indicates that there is currently no imminent danger to the crew from large-scale obstacles.

      4. Mute the MICROPHONE.

      5. Once this is completed, move on to DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #3.

      DEBRIS IMPACT PANEL #3

      EMERGENCY 

      When you find an emergency onboard the Spacecraft, you will need to work with the NRG team to walk the Mission Commander through fixing the emergency. The NRG team will be speaking directly to the Mission Commander.

      1. Locate the CHAT in your call software.

      2. Select “NRG” from the drop-down menu.

      3. Send the following message to “NRG”, filling in the blank in the message:

      EMERGENCY! Debris Impact Panel #___ has a dangerous impact hole reading. Immediately realign the solar panels to the angle at which the Spacecraft receives the most solar energy.

      4. The NRG team will then contact the Mission Commander directly and relay specific instructions for fixing the emergency. After the NRG team finishes giving the Mission Commander instructions, send the following message to NRG team:

      This is the HAZ team. Please check the solar panels for potential damage.
