I’m sorry I haven’t had as much time this past week to post too much. Among other things, I had been hoping to post a little review and commentary on the MarsDrive Reference Mission that was linked to last month on Hobbyspace. Unfortunately I’ve been rather busy this past week. We’re starting to get the vehicle plumbed up, and we’re also headed out tomorrow and Saturday to see if we can get the rest of the thermal data we need to finish our throttleable regen engine. On top of all that, I’ve been doing a lot of logistics work with one of the potential test sites for doing tethered tests of our XA-0.1, 0.2, and XL-0.1 vehicles. So I haven’t had much time or energy to do much blogging as of late.
Next week is Spring Break, so the other engineers and some of our interns will be around full-time next week, so I’ll likely be even more busy than I was this week. Just giving you a heads up.
