Bench Test

Last week, we were in Oberpfaffenhofen and tested our module together with the other experiments and the Service Module. For us, everything went quite well, the same is true for the other teams. There were some problems for some, but they could all be solved.

Our experiment is running longer then the others, so we can measure the accelerations on impact. Usually the test takes only a couple of minutes and then the experiments get shut off again, but we need power till the end, so everybody has to wait for us, making every test as long as the actual flight will take (about 20 minutes). That’s a lot of coffee.
