ST5000 Flight 36.172 (PI Nordsieck, UWisc, WISP)

This was our very first flight, with the Mark I Star Tracker 5000, flown just this once.

We got great data, good enough to show us we were on the right track.

Our telemetry coverage wasn't as good as we built into the Mark II, but we did produce a lot of plots to show how we did.

I present them all here, for the record.
