The presentation at the Symposium went fine and we got some interesting questions and comments from the audience. Here you can find some pictures of the presentation.
At the Symposium we also had a poster to show to the other participants our work. Here you can see our poster and all the REXUS/BEXUS ones.
The Muscat team is now at the ESA PAC symposium! It has been 2 days already here with plenty of discussions and many interesting presentations. So far the MUSCAT team has only been mentioned by the supervisor of the project Nickolay Ivchenko, during his presentation. The big day for the MUSCAT team is coming tomorrow with the presentation of our experiment and the preliminary results already obtained in the already stated data processing stage of the project.
As you may know the ESA PAC symposium is being held in Thun (Switzerland). This place is a awesome location that only could be improved by hosting such as nice event as the ESA PAC where a bunch of rocket and balloon nerds can gather, discuss and get plenty of outcomes for future work. Just so get an idea of the beauty of Thun I leave you this picture
New updates about the MUSCAT presentation coming tomorrow!
You were promised a video from the launch of the MUSCAT experiment. It seems that the waiting is over. Enjoy!
Here is a small image from the ejection of a FFU. A video from the launch is coming in the future.
Our dear followers!
We have all FFUs back, we have started saving data from Doc and Sneezy/Bashful (Frankenstein) the read out will probably finish in a few hours. The data on those looked like it should. Actually the read out is finished on one of the FFUs, we hava 1,13 GB of data from that one. We will back it up on dropbox, our harddrive and on one of the team members computer. As well as read it out again if we have time. We will do quick analysis as soon as we can, but we want to start the read out of the two last FFUs before that. The RMU functions after the crash, but we lost the connection to it some minutes after the ejection of the FFUs. We will put some recovery pictures and video as soon as we have finished packing and/or reading out the data/analysed it.
Here you can see the trails of the FFUs during decent.
We will soon read out the data!
We have acquired a position for all FFUs and handed them over to the recovery crew. They are now getting ready to leave on the helicopter.
We have positions from Doc and Sneezy and Sleepy
