You could read more in this thread...

It is what I made to make a cheaper and smaller solution to controlling rotors.
Like the YAESU G-5500 SATELLITE AZIMUTH/ELEVATION ROTOR

It seems that the launch has been postponed to Wednesday to fix a leak associated with the gaseous hydrogen venting system outside Endeavour's external fuel tank

The mission is postponed again due to the same problem that caused an earlier delay. It will at least take a month before the launch will happen. At least, that is what I read in today's newspaper

There are retro reflectors, if you shine a laser at it it will come right back to the laser. So, no, you can see the mirrios, they point light back the same way it comes in.

 We tough about putting 3 watt leds on it, but decides not to due to power conservation

Yes, The launch pad is needed for other launches. So it will be a while for them to get back on the pad.

EDIT:

Well my mentor says he is going to procrastinate the public info because the launch inst until July. He hopes to get a site up with info tough.
I have permission for my code to be public.
I will post the g-1000 code and the sat code for my board, which reads from 3 accelerometers. Nothing exciting.

We are working on other satellites too. Our next one will be based on the atmegamega. Having 4 UART ports save us processor time and the hassle of emulating it in software.

Also, when i post the code feel free to make suggestions for changes, too late tough for the sat code >.>, it is already on board!

Holy crap! This is awesome!

Your G-1000 antenna rotator controller kicks butt! Blows away anything I've seen before. I've been a (relatively inactive) ham radio operator for 10 years myself, so this definitely piques my interest.

Good luck on the launch, let's hope STS-127 isn't delayed tomorrow, and your bird gets up there without a hitch!

First of all, congratz! I'm also 17, and I wish I had a similar institution in my country and work on that kind of projects. Anyway, congratz again! smiley-wink smiley


Guess Arduino is going outspace in ~45 minutes, according to the RSS feed. :smiley


EDIT

Launched!
