Inside a rocket factory

We are very busy at the moment, some have still exams left, the others are are updating & expanding our SED (student experiment documentation). Therefore I’ll keep this post short and just recommend the following video: http://youtu.be/TQ6tZtGrShg

It is a tour of the SpaceX facilities, guided by CEO Elon Musk, going from the engineering offices to manufacturing to testing and to the launch pad – through all stages of a rocket. Definitely an interesting place to work, and some of the facilities we could use well for ISAAC…

(Note: the video is roughly 2 years old, in the meantime the launch pad was built and both Falcon 9 and Dragon have flown several times.)
