Dance Floor

After a weather abort the day before, BLAST-Pol took a trip outside yesterday to the "dance floor". This is a wooden platform that’s away from buildings so that GPS antennas work better, in the sun so that sun sensors work better, and away from ferromagnetic objects so that the magnetometer works better. Basically it’s where all of our coarse pointing sensors work better. And so we go there to test and calibrate them.
