Hi everyone!

Exciting day today: lots got done. In summary: there are no critical
items on our Launch 12 issue list. Congratulations to everyone who
helped get them done - we're in very good shape for the launch now! Here
are some highlights:

- The recovery system was assembled and is ready for flight (nosecone +
recovery module)

- Both the ARTS and Telemetrum COTS flight computers have been wired up
and fully tested.

- The payload module is wired better than it's ever been, including
connectors between the recovery module and the payload module. We also
put holes in the aeroshell to access the M3 screws, which means that we
can button up the entire avionics system Tuesday evening if things go well.

- The Venus838 COTS GPS chip is now sending GPS position data at 20 Hz.

See you all Tuesday for our go/no-go and launch logistics meeting!
