After the "hydrazine incident", why didn't Andrei go back out to repair the communications array? It didn't take very long to fix it on the ground. Fixing it would have allowed resumption of contact with Earth. Wouldn't it have been worth the risk to fix it as soon as they had landed? Was a reason given for this?
