Next Up: Sequence Testing


With initial set-up and TM checks done, Jeremy left Fairbanks and returned to the ridiculous warmth of California. Amanda, Erica, and Nathan remain to hold up the UCB end.

After a relaxing, bitterly cold weekend of Chinese food and hockey games, we’re back on the ground running to get through sequence tests. Sequence testing includes connecting the different groups’ parts of the rocket together, confirming that they all communicate with each other, and then running through a practice countdown.

There was slight holdup due to some grounding issues on APIS, but as always, the scientists’ problem-solving skills shone through.

We’re on track for pyro installation and finally getting ready for roll-out testing within the next few days.
