Hi guys! This is the new configuration of MISSUS! After the CDR in ESTEC (Netherlands) we have re-defined the layout and from now on the boom will be separate from the “experiment box” , fixed directly on the gondola rails!
5 people of MISSUS team are traveling to ESTEC for the CDR. They will reach Davide who is already in Noordwijk for the soldering course.
It’s time to update our website and give some news about how the work is going on!
We had such a really busy April that we had so little time to update you!
Let’s start with the deadlines of the REXUS-BEXUS programme. We updated MISSUS SED (Student Experiment Documentation) with version 1-2 by the 20th of April, then we received the feedback from the RX-BX board.
Then it was time for the CDR (Critical Design Reviews) deadline: the 1st of May! Just yesterday we submitted the new SED version 2-0. Now we are preparing for the discussion that will be in ESTEC (Nordwijk-the Netherlands).
We had also some “light” work: presentations of MISSUS experiment in high schools in Veneto (Italy) to spread MISSUS about and also involve the students to pursue engineering and scientific courses and take part in the future educational ESA programmes.
The training week we took part from 27th of February to the 2nd of March in ESRANGE (Kiruna) has been really exciting and helpfull for all the team! We had the discussion of our PDR (Preliminary design review), presentations and -ask the experts- sessions. We really want to thanks all the Experts for advices, organization, fun and all the new friends from the other REXUS/BEXUS teams we met!
Here there’s an amazing picture of the Aurora Borealis taken by our team member Davide. The next week we will put also the other pictures of the Training week!
Missus team is working hard for the writing of the SED, the PDR (Preliminary design review) deadline is on the 16th of February!!!
We hope to make a really good job!
We are looking foward to be in Kiruna to meet the other teams, get useful advices and discussing the project with the expert panel from ESA, DLR, SSC, SNSB!
