AO-40: first successful activation of ATOS

Dear All,

The first activation of the ATOS propellant feed system was performed
successfully on orbit #295. 

Telemetry confirmed that the heater for the ammonia, the flow rate
controller, valves and pressure indicators seem to work appropriately. 

The duration for the out-gassing was about 22 minutes and will now be
increased during further tests. 

Congratulations to the command team for another superb job!
