Thanks to our great ZARGES boxes, our experiment module, tools and other equipement arrived savely in Oberpfaffenhofen for the bench test.
Beside the bench test, a lot of other tests are planned for this week. First, a systems check and then a few flight simulation tests, including one round with all experiments from REXUS 21 connected.

Since there have been problems before with other experiments which were affecting the service module, the influence of our system on the GPS was tested one more time. To everyone’s great relief, no interferences were observable.

 

Finally, we could test our pyro cutter, which was working well. We passed all tests successfully, so if there are no more suprises, everything should be fine for the campaign in March.
