Sun Sensor, Clouds, Team Shirtless

Yesterday Natalie and Laura had the gondola taken outside again to calibrate the sun sensors and the magnetometer. We arrived at 6:30, and the CSBF folks all came in to collect some weekend overtime. We were out well before the sun got too high but had to wait a bit for the sun to dissipate some low-level clouds. Because the GPS doesn’t give attitude while hanging from Tiny Tim, we had to rotate the gondola ye olde fashioned way (ie Nick, aka Rotate Commander). Because of the heat, Team Rotate eventually became Team Shirtless (which Matt took a ton of pictures of—apparently photos titled with “Shirtless” are popular on flickr).
