Day 3, Closets and updates

Today we attached the last part of the tower. The guide rail is now attached to the truss and the tower is ready for the rocket. Unfortunately we still have to wait for the REXUS 6 to launch before we can begin with the preparation of the rocket motors. Another very important problem we solved today was how to store the parachutes. Fortunately the hotel provided us with special storage facilities.

Also good news from the electronics. Today all the updates were implemented and performed as expected. The electronic system does what we want and there are no errors or unexpected behavior. The updated software can now be intensively tested.

Also today there was time for skiing, around the Estrange base is a cross country skiing track. Although you are very close to the base you have the feeling that you are in the middle of nowhere.
