Test link - Jan 99
The purpose of this trip was to characterize the behavior of a joint
in varying thermal enviroments. The trip as a whole went very well.
It lasted from Jan 3, 1999 to Feb 6, 1999. Data from these tests
may or may not be published here in the future. We kept a web page
that we updated everyday. Below are links to each day.
The initial data indicates that the friction characteristic
of the joint over the temperature range can increase by a factor of around
5. The electronics appear to be able to fully perfom up to
a temperature of about 65c, and perform limited operations up to
around 85c. On the cold side, the electronics didn't show any weakness
down to a temperature of -40c. More to come as it becomes available.
Any questions about this trip or this page can be sent to the lab
Days gone by.
