Earlier today we had our Preliminary Design Review with the experts. We presented our current status in the project for about 20 minutes and discussed it with the experts afterwards. The presentation went well, but the were som issues regarding the design that considered them. The main issues are our high power consuption needed for the heating elements, the structural strength and how we will keep one of the chambers pressurized during the flight. We also have to perform several tests and simulations to prove that the experiment will work practically without heatspread and overpressure due to the pressurized chambers and the argon cartridge.
Now we look forward to more interesting information at the traning week and next week when the team is gathered again the hard work continues!
