Pre-deployment Integration – July, 2007

ATIC-4 began its long trek to Antarctica this year on July 10, 2007.  The first stop was Palestine, Texas home to the Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility where ATIC was scheduled to undergo integration with the ballooncraft systems.  The ATIC crew arrived at the CSBF on July 17 and spent the next two weeks assembling the experiment and integrating with the balloon systems.  On August 3 we successfully passed the compatibility (hang) test.  The experiment and all support equipment was then repacked and shipped to Antarctica.
