Arrival and start of ground preparation

The three 'Fly Your Thesis' student teams arrived in Mérignac on 15 October with their microgravity experiments. During the first two days of the campaign, they finalised the assembly of their experiments, passed two Novespace ground reviews, and added foam padding to their racks. The Dustbrothers and LINVforROS experiments were loaded onto the ZEROG aircraft.
