WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS FOR WEEK ENDING 06 November 1998:
A valuable Science Advisory Committee Review was held for the GP-B experiment. The committee members were non-GP-B persons including one past Nobel prize winner. There were many interesting discussions during the meeting.
The first two flight DPA isolators were assembled by Scott Fletcher. An additional qualification unit isolator was assembled and it has gone through environmental testing. The results of these tests are very good. Photo1: Top view of telescope (click to see Photo 2) Photo 2: dpa
