Flight Day 2 – Chasing the ghost
The rest of the first flight day was spent almost entirely in understanding and fixing the mysterious ‘Murphy’ ghost inside our laptop. We went through all possibilities: electrical consumption or radioactivity (?!) from other experiments, overflow of signals on our USB hub …
Nico in despair with the computer
Until finding out, until Aurèle, our computer geek;o), found out …With all the commands of our control software, the processor was reaching temperatures to over 100°C causing the immediate shut off of the computer! Aurèle then tweaked the processor operations to reduce the heating to about 90°C (staing at NOVESPACE until 20pm…), while Dan was reprogramming our software (in the car this morning at 6:30 am;o)…that’s flash&splash!
Will this work?
Nicolas (our ‘pilot’, who will take the commands of the computer ;o) and Aurèle will chase the ghost up in the air during their flight.
