A test file with four key LASSI students was downlinked from CAPSat last night. Pictured are Dillon Hammond (Software), Rick Eason (Integration), Logan Power (BG), Elizabeth Atkinson (Comms).

CAPSat has been on the receiving end of several solar flares over the last couple of weeks. While we continue to received data from her, our commanding capability appears to be susceptible to the flares which may be upsetting memory and limiting our ability to get commands in.  We are continuing to work the problem and hope to commence science operations when it is safe to do so.
