Mechanical hardware built a mock assembly of the project and started on drawing files.
Took measurements of the temperature sensors and figured out some wiring.
The Hardware team finished the conceptual block diagram and started the designs for the inner case.
They finished the bill of materials, found suitable materials for a case and looked up space equipment.
This week, Hardware went over long term and short term goals for the project as well as discussed what they learned in Denver at the CASIS meeting. They also split into mechanical and electrical sub-teams.
Here is the Hardware team working with Denise Henry from Ball Aerospace to brainstorm methods of combining the bacteria and nutrients.
