CODE10 #1 Part 4 – Sails

Yo, I don’t think we should talk about this
(Come on, why not?)
People might misunderstand what we’re tryin’ to say, you know?
(No, but that’s a part of life)

You have seen lots of pictures lately about the CODE 10 sail test, but we haven’t really got the chance to introduce our sails slightly better, which on #1 are made by QuantumSails.

Don’t forget our previous blog posts:

Note from us: The materials we have choosen is the result of several discussions with QuantumSails Hungary. We decided to go with this very material, which has the capability of simple modification, that can be easily done here locally.

We are happy to write this down today that we haven’t really needed to change anything. Congrats on Miklós Rauschenberger’s team and QuantumSails.

CODE10 #2 can easily go with other materials such as 3D sails, based on the final measures and experience we collected lately.
