(Early September through the start of October)

The RENU payload was successfully integrated and shipped to the Andøya Rocket Range in Andenes, Norway for the Nov/Dec launch window. All sequence tests and vibration testing was completed and the project was given the official go-ahead at the mission review meeting in early October. Click a photo for the larger version.
