DAY 6 - FREE TOUR IN BREMEM AND FLYBACK
Today was the last day so we decided to make a tour for the city and our thinking is that you must to see Brema, especially in this period with the Xmas Market. We also find a nice pub were to spend evening with beer and a lot of fun! After that in the night I went to airport to return in Italy passing from Lithuania. Unluckly i knew that Federico and Antonio had some turbles with their flight for a snow-storm in Brema.
DAY 5 - THE LAUNCH SIMULATION & XMAS PARTY "ONETHOUSEND EVENING BEERS"
We just finished to perform some launch simulations. All was good for everybody! We still have some work to do before the banches tests of janary but we will do it at pur university. And now we are waiting for Xmas party organaised by Mark Fittock :)
The Party was absolutley incredible. A lot of fun a lot of beer, a lot of new friends. Sean from TELESCOBE team (our new friends, other member are Stephen and Jack) became also our "onorary" member. He also decided to be barman for one night! With us were also Adam and Malcom from Suaineadh Team
DAY 4 - THE ROCKET PAYLOAD ASSEMBLY AND TESTING
Today, with the stuff of Rexus/Bexus we assembeld all the experiment togheter and we checked again our comunication to be sure to don´t have interference. All was ok :) After that we did another test with a kind of personal launch simulation. Was really cool to ear "Redemption here there will be your ground station" :P Of course also this test was ok. Tomorrow we will have the launch simulation test and after, in the evening, the Xmas party all togheter! So what are you waitinfg for apply for an Rexus/Bexus program?
DAY 3 - THE VIBRATION
The X day... We affronted the big shaker. The scary test. But our Module did not have problem. We perform vibration test on Y, X and Z Axis. We lose only a screw and this is a big result, becouse we know the we forgot to fix that screw with the glue. Unuseful to say how much happy we were! We want say thanks to Hans and Natasha from Rexus/Bexus and the DLR staff of Vibration Laboratory. Were all very friendly and professional and we also have as gift a cool pen form the lab ;)
DAY 2 - THE SKIN
We worked hard to assemble the electronical part that was transported by Federico to avoid damege. We fixed all the cable, and we integrated the Redemption with the rocket Module. Now it has a cool blue skin. The view is amaying. Looks very pro. After that we checked that our electronics can comunicate in right way with the rocket interface. After some intial problem gived by some not functional channel of simulator and twisted cable we had a perfect telemetry! Now Redemption is ready for the big shaker! In the evening traditional german dinner all togheter!
DAY 1 - THE TRIP
The trip of me and Redemption was very long... a kind of odissey. We take the plane form Milano-Bergamo and we landed at Weeze-Dussendolf. From there we take the train, we change 4 trians ad we arrive in Bremen at 1.40 am... Luckly the hostel in which we sleeped was open and the recieption very friendly. some hour of sleep before an hard full work day.
