Potato Cannon

A couple weeks ago we began our final push to get Spider finished in time to pack up and leave. The primary target was the Compatibility test with CSBF’s telemetry electronics. But we also wanted to finish characterizing detectors and cryogenics, and to generally make everything more flight-like.

Meanwhile, because hair products had been obtained for styling mohawks, Bill decided to construct a potato cannon. After some very "meh" initial tests, the intertubes taught us that static guard is far more flammable than hairspray. The potatoes didn’t know what hit them.
