On Monday morning all of our six team members got out of bed and knew: the most exciting part of the REXUS program is coming! We traveled from Würzburg to Frankfurt where we checked in at the airport, which was quite adventurous since Matthias had his 600mm lens, that looks like an over dimensioned gun, in his baggage (see the pictures!), so he had a lot of fun with the security guys… But finally we got onto the plane to Stockholm.
Last Week four of our Team Members, Thomas, Florian, Sven and Jochen were in Oberpfaffenhofen at the MORABA – Labs for the Bench Test. During the Bench Test Week, all REXUS – experiments were mounted onto the real REXUS Service-Module, the Module which will distribute the Power and downlink the Data from the experiment modules,
