First of all we are happy to welcome our new team member Emil Vincent who joined SOLAR this week. He will from now on work in the electronics group.
Today we recieved our result from the PDR. As we expected the technical parts in our SED have to be improved. Regarding the mechanics we shall do much more simulations so we can prove that the experiment can withstand the vibrations and heavy forces that it will be exposed to during the flight but also the heat that the components and soldering elements will generate. There were also some issues regarding the argon gas chamber, but we have actually decided to remove that part from the experiment and fully focus on the two other chambers and work them out as good as possible. Regarding electronics and software we have to be more specific and do more tests on the soldering process.
Although we have alot to do we feel exited to continue working with all the new feedback. So after our exam on Monday we are good to go!
Have a really nice weekend (cause we won't)!
