High-Gain Antenna Test is Complete

SDO completed the Failed High-Gain Antenna Simulation and rolled back to its normal orientation at 1900 UTC (3:00 p.m. ET) last Wednesday. Here is a short video using the Where's SDO? images showing that day in the life of SDO. Watch the Z-axis for the flip.
Many thanks to the FOT and instrument team member who planned and executed this test. We learned a lot!
