Workshop week: the making of an ejection system

This week is workshop week! We are making good progress with manufacturing the ejection system. Everything is on track for the first ejection tests next week! Stay tuned…

Today we finished two important parts: the hooks and the hatch stops.  these parts are what holds our FFUs back before we eject them. We don’t want them to fail, because a premature ejection could be quite dangerous. Therefore these parts are quite sturdy – safety first!
