The satellite tracking sites use a computer model of the orbit, with periodic corrections applied using radar tracking station reports. So, it will take some days before the track is removed.

30 sec would be 'warm start' from the ORP. All systems will be powered on and standby. Just strap in, start engine and roll.

The LCA should do something similar (I don't know the spec). Even the 'cold start' is pretty fast for her (I know the spec).

Ramana, what I said is, the specific failure mode of "crack during SMT placement" is outright unlikely, not worth mentioning as a potential root cause. Bad repair might qualify as a failure mode.

My money is on some "mode setting" that the crew forgot/failed to reset.
