August 13, 2011 : ccccamp day 4

Went to the moonbounce and telemetry lectures, and then the foaf and logic analyser/oscilloscope workshops, and the amsat talk in the evening.

Helped someone assemble there led cube display thing and got a botttle of mate for my trouble, here's what it looked like when finished (my cameras dying):


Also helped make a sculpture out of glow sticks:


Club-Mate seems to be more popular than beer:


And this kind of thing is only to be expected:


The moon bounce team were successful and managed to contact some people in Russia and France, lots of paper hot air ballons being launched from the camp.

sad to think it's nearly over :(
