Hi everyone!

Rocket hack day tomorrow in FAB 84! There's plenty on the agenda since
our July launch is getting terrifyingly close. Please come help out if
you can!

### Intro this Tuesday!

Nathan and I will be giving our "Intro to PSAS" talk this coming Tuesday
June 3rd, from 6 - 7pm in FAB 84. Please direct people you think might
be interested in doing rockets to that intro -- we're trying to get
people sucked in for this summer! It's a particularly good time for
people to come to the meeting and get involved with the upcoming July
launch.

### Looking for some brave souls

We're looking for people to take on the following largish projects for
the July flight:

- Video in Linux. Frank got the initial prototyping done, but now we
need someone to really integrate the digital video from the Raspberry Pi
video systems into the flight computer stack and telemetry system. This
is probably someone who knows Linux, programming, and is interested in
digital video, video compression, etc.

- Prepare new flight computer for flight. Our current FC has a flaky USB
subsystem, so we'd like to swap it out for our current backup. That
means recording the current FC's BIOS setup and programming the new FC
with that setting, then actually swapping out the boards.

- Controls for the new roll control system. If you're interested in
controls, we need someone to re-implement our roll control system using
the new avionics setup.

... and there are dozens more smaller projects. Come tomorrow (Friday)
or Tuesday and help get us ready for July!

Cheers,

Andrew
