ASM functionality check – part II

Oh Man! Armando and I waked up having in mind to put the hands into the ASM…. what a mess!!! So GO! light breakfast with only one egg , yogurt, cheese, ham and orange juice (for me) and double ham and cheese sandwich with tea (for armando) in order to be reactive to the ASM trickery.

After a quick meeting (2h!!!), Povilas and Dave and Jared gave us a hope: using a LEGO strategy, we would be avoiding to open the ASM on the telescope. The LEGO strategy essentially was the in-place replacement of the fiber connector. Oh yes… a bit a bet that the connector was the only source of the problem but we verified that in the mean of the replacement procedure so, all good πŸ™‚ !

Our friends needed a bit of training but after a couple of attempts they made a great job and the electronics could communicate again with the ASM!

Armando was showing proudly the source of the issue, now harmless…

We were so happy that Alfio and I decided to celebrate with the new garlic sauce never tasted by anyone…

After to be garlic powered, we tested all the stuff and…
