reboost to new orbit detected by 'Ed'

Tue Feb 23, 2016 3:44 pm

Tim Peake posted a video of last week's ISS reboost to a higher orbit, showing how he slowly drifted as the station accelerated.
Apparently, 'Ed' @astro_pi_vis was able to detect this.

That's right. So Ed has finishing running two student experiments (Crew Detector and SpaceCRAFT) and is now running a data logging program which is gathering sensor measurements into a database for this educational resource. You'll be able to download the CSV file and look for the reboost in the accelerometer data.

Next Monday Ed is also having his SD card swapped out with another one and will then run Watchdog and Radiation after which he'll do some more data logging.
