She ain't purdy but she's sturdy.

That's a terrible rhyme and I apologize.

Spencer, our machinist, has finished the payload frame and she's a tank!

He's pretty proud of it.

After a discombobulated month of ballooning, rovers, videos, visitors, weddings, and general chaos we finally all got back together 

We were concerned that March would be a stagnant month for production because of other obligations but we actually had a very productive month. Dan and Jimmy vacuum tested a lot of our new cameras and servos and we're happy to report that everything works!

Murr was not pleased that her camera wasn't talking to the computer the way it's supposed to. 

But then she got it to work!!!

Landon and Memes are doing robotic kinematics the old fashioned way. (Good luck to Landon on his upcoming FRR.)

And we have the (final?) revision to our robotic arm and Spencer will start machining it next week! 

In the month ahead we have a HAB launch and a week at Kennedy Space Center.
