MEX ASPERA-3 scanner was moved

by Leif Kalla last modified Jan 25, 2006 11:55 AM

More than 2.5 years after launch and more than 3 years after the last test, the MEX ASPERA-3 scanner was moved yesterday!

The scanner was initialized on Jan. 24 10:30 UT and sensor assembly placed in the 10 deg position, after 3.5 hours at 14:00 UT it was initialized again and the assembly was placed to 90 deg position (launch configurations). We have not yet received HK and science data but first indications from the s/c HK taking in "real" time (8 min one-way time) are positive: the current increased as it should and gyro readings showed that something was moving on the spacecraft.
