To all student flight experiment teams-
As NCESSE received detailed information regarding the upcoming ITA Fluid/Sample Compatibility Test, we passed that information along in posts on this Blog, and created a new FAQ section dedicated to the test. But it has lead to basic information being disseminated piecemeal, and spread across multiple locations on this website. In addition, there was some ambiguity about the due date for fluids and solids to arrive at ITA, with a 2 day difference between the Blog posts and the FAQ. Scheduling for the test was still being worked out at ITA, which led to the ambiguity.
We apologize to all student teams for any confusion.
NCESSE and ITA spent the day today locking down all critical information, and creating a new page at this site dedicated to the Fluid/Compatibility Test. It is meant to be a central location for all the basic information your teams need to successfully submit the fluids and solids for this important test.
We urge all student teams to carefully read the new Fluid/Sample Compatibility Test page. The majority of the information is not new, put pulled together in a single page.
