Today is the last day of the first week of the Launch Campaing…that means it is also a special Sunday….many events…..they would put the nosecone to the rocket that means SQUID would be covered and we wouldn’t see it again until we recovered after mission …. so we wanted to be at that moment but until then we had some free time so what we did was to go to the marvelous ICE HOTEL..we had access to the art rooms and they are amazing… a bit cold but different from last year….you could see some photos .. then after been impressed by the hotel we came back to the ESRANGE but what was our surprise than we not only encounter a group of three reindeer but also another group with four of them …it was very nice to see them running along with us….but of course one needs to be careful….it is very dangerous to crash with them ..and actually we found in the side road a dead reindeer ..
Then after we return to ESRANGE we had a meeting were the team leaders should explain why your experiment was ready to FLIGHT!!…of course before being able to confirm that…we had a discussion previous the meeting. We found out 3 major problems in SQUID during this week (1.GPS position, 2.Communication between RMU and FFU and 3. SCALE behavior), but thanks to a group work and dedication we solved them without setbacks and we feel quite confident our SQUID will perform successfully …then finally Gustav sign the papers where he as a representative of SQUID team say SQUID IS READY TO FLIGHT!!! and as Olle Persson said all we are WINNERS because we arrive to this point
So the activities ended and we deciide to relax a bit and watch some movies….so then we can start the most exciting and slowly week!!
