Very short update today. To be honest today was a fairly slow day engineering-wise. We got some of the parts sourced, and made some arrangements for the flight, but very few visible technical milestones. Mike Judson made it out here this evening to collocate with us (after finishing up a final this morning), and Forrest will be out here tomorrow evening. We’ll be getting most of the rest of the machined parts out to various machinists tomorrow, with the hopes of having the boom deployer pieces in house and ready to assemble by Friday or Saturday.
Sorry for a boring post, but I wanted to follow-through with my commitment to blog about this every work day.
