Thermal testing underway

Two of the team were able to work again today, and spent a couple of hours after school finishing the last touches on the satellite to prepare it for testing and then launch.

At the moment, the satellite is in a refrigerator, taking data while being monitored by another data collection computer as well.  We’ll confirm things are working OK, and then it will be ready to fly.
