Day 3 of experiment preparation.
The experiment is ist mounted onto the balloon gondola and working correctly. Some more tests in the real technical flight-environment follow today. First launch opportunity is on Wednesday.

Today we gonna have our Preliminary Design Review here at ESRANGE. We are looking forward to a constructive discussion!

Yesterday we had an experiment-mockup construction session to check the arrangement of the experiments on the BEXUS gondola. Our experiment is the big box on the right bottom corner of the gondola.
