Test new memory types in space and detect Space Fence.


Payload A will test the viability of new memory types in space, by assessing whether or not data was corrupted due to radiation. Payload B will focus on detection of the Lockheed Martin Space Fence. This “fence” covers the United States at a certain altitude. It is the team’s goal to use Payload B to detect the fence when it is passing through, and mark the time and position of passing.
