First of all, sorry for poor activity on the blog! We have had some tough weeks with exams mixed with alot of work with SOLAR.
Tha main thing that we have decided is to skip the mechanisms that we had in our preliminary design. The mechanisms was a nice idea and would have been great if it would work during the flight. But after discussions with some experts we were told that it would be very hard to use that much and accurate mechanisms.
So now we are kinda close to our first design where we will use nicrome-wire to melt the samples.Now we are doing simulations on the new design (stay tuned for pictures) and several tests with the nicromewire and the solder.
We wish you all a pleasant saturday night!
