2.51 Experiments, Turkey Day, and Chess
The solder experiment explores how long it will take for a bead of solder to transition from solid to liquid on a metal surface at different hot air rework temperatures, mass flows, and attack angles.
The clothes iron experiment looks at the radiative heat transfer rate from a metal surface to different colors of shirts for different iron settings.

So, with that said, I will continue to the best of my ability.
Last night, I met up with a friend from the MIT Rocket Team regarding the sensor placement in the Hermes III nosecone and we talked about the "screw-in" temperature sensors. Last Spring in the previous rocket design, we placed the sensors directly to the fiberglass body with Proline 4500 epoxy. This was troublesome because the fixture was basically permanent (until the high speed collision with the solid Mojave desert). This time, we will be able to strongly affix the sensors to the proper place in the nosecone but have the option to unscrew the sensors from the body.
