    The longerons will expand and contract with exposition to sun (I think whatever the material they are made of). Because you have 4 longerons in a mast, you just need to be carefull that the mast is well balanced, and that the 4 longerons support each other, basically, you need an even number of shadowed longerons, possibly 0 too. I would call this an operational constraint.

International Space Apps Challenge - 3 views

  •  
    The International Space Apps Challenge is now over, it is interesting to have a look at the solutions ...
  •  
    c'mon really! To name a few:
    - Tour of the Solar System ... that is one of the numerous specialities of the ACT.
    - Satellite data correlation tool ... solution is flawed, but I really like the idea. Lot of added value. I definitely think are interestung stuffs to do there for cheap.
    - Aurora project: Model & Data ... space weather not interesting?!
    - Kepler ... a classic

    Do not expect the solutions to be tremendous just after 3 days of work, but the proposed list of challenges are "seeds" for innovation to me.
