News From the ERGOnaut Team!

First trial of the capsule for the ERGOnaut Mini at the Euclid Labs dock (check us out on the ERGO map: http://data.ergotelescope.org/map/google_earth).

What they figured out:
1.  The ERGOnaut Mini can be much simpler–just a G-M detector with clicker and an audio MP3 recorder.  Simple, cheap, and small.

2.  The first trial of the steel pipe fitting design worked great, except for one thing:  after four days submerged at 2 meters it had about a half inch of water inside.  That should be similar to an hour at 200 meters, so we need to make that better (but they’re close!).
