Some major news has just been released regarding the upcoming AMSAT-Spain GENESIS mission! Both the GENESIS satellites, as well as the Applied Ion Systems AIS-gPPT3-1C pulsed plasma thrusters have successfully passed vibration testing! This was the one thing that worried me most, and it looks like my tiny thrusters have survived this big step! Congratulations to the AMSAT-Spain, Fossa Systems, and Libre Space Foundation teams for the incredible success so far on this amazing international collaboration! One step closer to space!
