As always form tomorrow there will be a day by day report and photos of events! Stay tuned!
This is our Laboratory and our module... all in one bag!
DAY 1 - TRAIN TRIP
After 8 hours in one really comfortable train we arrived in Steinbach from Bologna. We had just time to have an incredible dinner and to greets some friend of REXUS/BEXUS programme. The evening is finished with Nik and Faabian in our room taking some beer.
DAY 2- TESTING THE SERVICE MODULE
Today after we arrived in DLR we tested our electronics, communications and telemetry with the service module that will fly with our rocket. All gone well and we didn't have any problems! Only a pity to don't have Wifi inside the laboratory but this is necessary for safety. So the updates will be less frequently and only in the evening.
DAY 3- THE HOT COUNTDOWN
Today after that all experiment were ready and integrated also with service module and the rocket connected with the recovery module were made 2 countdown. One cold and one hot with all experiments running. It's means also our foam. This means that we removed the safety plug to arm the springs and electrovalves. Unluckly we had some problems. Our experiment worked as epected in all mecchanical and electronical parts... but we had a problem with the reaction. The good side of the thing is that we know the problem and how solve as those problem was our fault. We undervaluated some conditions. After a little speaking with the panel of Rexus/Bexus programme we had the ok for the launch! It's means that we will be in Kiruna!
Day is finished eating all toghether and with an afterdinner in the room of SOMID team drinking all togheter!
