Weekly News - January 25th, 2016

Over the past two weeks, the team has continued work on the lower body mold. Dry runs on the lower body were conducted in order to find leaks in the mold which in turn were patched. The carbon fiber strips were cut for the entire lower body mold and the driver box fairing mold layups were started. The team also finished the construction of our second oven, allowing us to encapsulate twice as many solar cells. The next couple of weeks will entail finishing up the lower body mold, cutting the coring for the lower body, and starting solar array tabbing and encapsulation.
