Today we tested all our components in a cold chamber at vaQtec, a company here in Wuerzburg specialized on vacuum insulation. During the test all subsystems are powering up and running at -40°C ! We were afraid that the camera might not be working under such harsh conditions, but everything went well and the Core System was able to capture image frames and collect temperature/current data from the Measurement Unit, so the cold chamber test with conditions like those occuring during the launch campaign in Kiruna is considered to be successful.
