So, this is a little different from Milton Keynes! It’s 37 degrees here for a start, and could get hotter, which poses a real challenge for our payload which requires sufficient cooling to produce ice…but we’ll get to that in subsequent posts!
So, we rented the largest truck available, and we, erm, kinda of managed to fit the crate into it!
Team member Dave Harris designed and made the crate – a big job, and it’s done a great job so far of protecting the rocket – thanks FedEx too, actually you did a really good job of getting it here in really good time. Rob arrived first, and collected it, loaded and unpacked it – on his own…it’s 100kg – just saying…
This is how the crate began its journey
and the rocket is now un-packed, and we’re ready for a couple of mad days of preparation before we can think about launching. We’re hoping to launch on the first day, but we also have a lot of things to do before then, so I’d better go get started!
