Back in Palestine, for SuperBIT

SuperBIT is preparing for a test flight in Palestine, TX. I arrive a day late with the Princeton team. We arrived half a day after the Toronto team, who had unpacked everything.

I join the group preparing to test electronics in the Bemco: a big thermal/vacuum chamber. We use it to check that things will survive the cold and almost-vacuum of the stratosphere.

Another group unpacks the telescope and disassembles it for a checkup and cleaning.
