The Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment III on the International Space Station (SAGE III/ISS) payload is powered off and in a safe configuration with survival heaters on following a loss of power on the ExPRESS Logistics Carrier-4 (ELC4). ISS is assessing options for restoring operational power to the payload, and the SAGE III team is planning for reactivation of the payload after the extended power off is over. Please check back for further updates.
