Just a quick heads up, The CrawSat III Team has resumed work on the balloon to prepare for a ReLaunch on January 8th, 2011. We’re currently rerunning a full-up, 24 hour, revamped battery test, and a cutdown test. In addition, we’ll be fixing our errors in the mechanical design on weight.
Also I’ve uploaded a video from the December 18th, 2010 Launch Day, from the launch site to our youtube account of CrawSat III.
Just thought i’d link the concept videos of the CAPE Mechanical Design, created by our Mechanical team:
An Exploded view and assembly of the CAPE-2 Satellite.
Experimental Video of including Deployable Solar Panels on CAPE-2
Keep on the look out for more videos in the coming days!
Here are a few videos from the balloon launch. The first two are from the launch and the second two are from just before recovery.
Oh, did I mention we have a ULCape Youtube Channel? Stay tuned for more video and pictures from the launch.
