Day 4 – July 13 – Let’s Rock and Roll

Posted by admin-robotlord on July 13, 2011

Day 4 has come and passed. What went on today? Well, my friends, let’s turn the clock back now shall we? 12 am: everybody is working on a few adjustments. Chris, Veselin, Mike and Meaghan were working on getting our motor controllers to behave, while Aassem, Lee, Kris and I were fashioning up a new lid for SubmURSA. You may think that feeding that childhood desire to melt things would give us great satisfaction, but you’d be WRONG. We started making the lid at about 9 pm and finally ended at 1 am. The motor controller group wasn’t having much luck.

Fast forward to early morning, we arrived at the TRANSDEC. Unfortunately, things took an interesting turn and the motor controller for our thrusters began to behave, while our newly made lid cracked. Fortunately, it wasn’t too big so it was patch-able with marine goop. We’ve also added some sealant on the lid to add some additional leaking protection, but the drying time proved much too testing to the patcience. Fear not, however, as we found a solution: use plumber’s putty! We haven’t been able to put SubmURSA into the water. Hopefully, that is what tomorrow will bring. Looks like another long night to tweak things up a bit.
