The surprise entry in these Games, at least IMHO, is the team from the Universityof Alberta (UASERT). This is partly my fault; there are team chats every Sunday which I used to attend. However I haven’t recently, but the UASERT has.
The first two pictures are of the bottom side of their solar array, one shot looking downward on the array while the other shot is looking edge-on to the array.
They’re still assembling their system and hope to get out to the lakebed tomorrow for laser testing.
One other note about this team; if you visit their website, you can read both their blog (which is very interesting and gives the reader a good view of the team’s activities as it scrambled to get ready for this competition) and a number of photos. Good stuff…
