Second Day at ESRANGE.


Today we went through the Safety regulations of the Rocket Base and we assembled the FFUs for “Full Mission Test”. In this test we will check the our probes (FFUs) will start collecting sensor data and GPS raw data after ejection and that they will deploy the parachute and send position coordinates for recovery.

This is the last test we will do on our experiment before the assembly of the rocket.
