    That explains why I could not find a scheduled waste water dump in the mission
    timeline for the time observed by Dan Deak:
    The additional water dumps, including the one observed by Dan, must have been
    added after the timeline was posted. It appears that an updated detailed
    schedule is posted to the above site each day, so perhaps those for the
    remainder of the flight will provide the schedule for each dump.
