FUNcube-1 is making new friends
“I am happy to report that after two days of travelling which included 3 separate flights, a night in a hotel in Moscow, and a 2.5 hour car-ride over some of the bumpiest roads I’ve travelled on, I have safely arrived in the hotel of the launch base in Yasny.
We have just had a delicious dinner and are planning to spend the night relaxing before work can start in earnest tomorrow morning.
We will start at 9 AM local time with a safety briefing and having our headshots taken so we can get badges to access the cleanroom.
Internet access seems decent and stable so I hope to be able to provide regular updates during the next few days.”
The Kosmatras website has also been updated today and provides details of the arrival of some of FUNcube-1’s fellow travellers http://www.kosmotras.ru/en/news/133/
