RE: Space Harding of birds - a lesson -



Assi,
Well sir: AMSAT builds birds.....
There is an issue of space hardening when anyone builds a bird.
I am suggesting that it might be interesting and educational to those of
us who have not been on the front lines, to hear from those that have.
If you have such knowledge and would like to tell us the different
procedures followed by the commercial builders and AMSAT, please do!
Regards,
Gunther

Gunther,
What are you talking about?
Space hardening & AMSAT?
Are you familiar with commercial hardening vs AMSAT style hardening?
