  • Final Report (Spring/Summer 2022)

Since the last month, many things have changed;

First and maybe most important:
The launch campaign for REXUS 29 and 30 has been postponed to March 2022!

Yes, this actually means that we now have a bit more time for getting everything done. Of course we are a bit sad to be now in the waiting queue, but on the other hand we are now able to really bring our experiment to perfection.

Meaning, we will now thoroughly assemble the experiment and get it functioning, for having it afterwards tested to the bone. We will conduct more tests to gain further data on the background science of the experiment, so we have a broader data foundation which we will use for relating our main experiment’s results.

Secondly:
We completed (and passed!) the Integration Progress Review under the eagle eyes of our responsible REXUS panel members. Though it happened in form of an online meeting, we were able to present our advances in the project as well as we could give a little virtual “room tour” of our facilities. And actually it was quite fun 🙂

But right now, for most of us, we have an intense exam phase ahead as we are still mainly students working through their studies despite all the effort put into the project.

Safe orbiting!

13th of August 2020

Currently, we are working as hard as possible under the given circumstances of Covid-19 restrictions to advance with the assembly of our experiment module. The upcoming Integration Progress Review (IPR) will check up with our updates and advances in the ongoing Assembly/Integration/Testing phase (AIT).

We are very happy to welcome our three new team members from the faculty for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology in our project. They already established their expertise quite well. Have fun, lads 🙂

Parallelly, the next exams of our universities come into the sight for most of us. But as we mastered the culmination of both studies and project work before, we’re confident to succeed through this.

Our design is getting more and more solid. 

Flow on safely!
