All Notes (5)
this is for this glider only
bbsl-645 puck went bad. caused fuse to short in science payload.
Some bad news regarding ru23:
The science unexpectedly shut off during the a segment flown: ru23_2010_172_6_83_sbd
Ever since that segment it has not given any data back. This morning I took manual control and tried to control science from the command line but to no avail. Multiple exit resets, use -, use +, unable to consci, and sensor manipulation and it looks like the bay is kaput. The only things I can think of are a power connector or comms cable came loose, or we perhaps popped a fuse with the full science bay? Likely the former.
The glider is turned around and I will email TWR regarding it to see if they have any ideas, but for the time being we are without science and she is flying back to recovery position. Sorry for the news, this is a first for us so its a bummer.
