Extreme testing

Posted on

Last week the  electronics team set out to do some testing on a very vital part of the experiment – the ignitors.

To ensure safety and success of the experiment, it is important that these components work as expected. The experiments truly put the ignitors to the test, especially since we overlooked the fact that the wire of the ignitors and sand paper did not work very well together. Several ignitors were destroyed, so the team is really lucky to have Alexander who came in on a Sunday to make new ones before the trip to Bremen.

Thank you Alex, you are our angel!

Sand paper + kanthal wire ≠ good
