2020-09-16 -- Aqua MODIS suffered a science data outage that started on August 16, 2020 (Day 229) at 09:26:40, because of a Formatter-Multiplexer Unit/Solid State Recorder (FMU/SSR) error. The Aqua Flight Operations Team worked closely with the different Instrument Operations Teams to resolve this problem, and was able to recover the FMU/SSR through a soft reset on September 2, 2020.
