Second SED submitted

The last few weeks we worked hard on the SED. We had to do some minor changes on the existing chapters and added new ones. Initially it was planned to use compressed air, but after some discussions with other teams and experts, we decided to use nitrogen as propellant. Furthermore, we determined to use RODOS, a real-time OS to control the experiment.
The next milestone is the CDR (Critical Design Review) in about two weeks at the DLR Oberpfaffenhofen, which is located near Munich and one of Germany’s largest research centres. We are all excited, especially Tobias Wahl, who will stay two days longer for a special soldering course, which teaches us to solder for special purposes e.g. to survive the harsh envirnoment of vacuum and high acceleration forces during rocket launch.
