AO-73 : Funcube 1

Spin Period

08 Feb 2019 = 17.4 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
09 Feb 2019 = 16.5 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
10 Feb 2019 = 17.4 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
11 Feb 2019 = 17.0 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
12 Feb 2019 = 17.6 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
13 Feb 2019 = 18.6 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
14 Feb 2019 = 21.3 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)

On the 12th February AO-73 started to tumble.
It is now tumbling in a complex rotational sequence suggesting “spin reversal” but that is not actually occurring.
