Shakedown flight Posted on November 23, 2016 by Scott Springer Part of the ROSETTA crew walking out to the plane at Williams Field. Kirsty is the Field Principal Investigator whose job is to keep the thirteen of us working like a machine. Here she gives some last minute instructions before the flight. Tej manages the Icepod console. Output on the Icepod control panel. This particular display shows readings from the magnetometer. Nick and Dave monitor one gravimeter while Fabio and Grant monitor another. We have two onboard in order to compare a new one with a well-established and well-understood one. Gravity anomalies in real time. The NY Air National Guard crew is very friendly and helpful. Back on the ground we start to dig into the data to see what it means.
