Our electronics expert has already found flaws which needs improvement in the inferior design of the Columbus Space Laboratory.
Mustn’t poke, but I just have to!
“Spaceship”. At least I thought it was funny….

Second day at ESTEC complete, but we (the SCRAP team) didn’t really do much. Today was the first day of proposal presentations, but mostly only BEXUS proposals. There were two REXUS proposals at the end though which means that we now know some of the biggest pitfalls for our presentation tomorrow. That’s one of the advantages of presenting second last 😉 After all the proposal presentations were done we did have time for some fun however during the tour of ESTEC. We got to see many interesting pieces of old space hardware that we could “investigate” (read: poke at). Time to  do a spurt for the presentation tomorrow. Double checks, final revisions and final rehearsals, and then it’s just up to fate. Wish us luck!
