Presence is a challenge sometimes

Although their satellite was already present at ISL, various (primarily bureaucratic) constraints prevented the Ukrainian delegation to arrive earlier that week and to do any substantial work that Thursday 8 May. However, on Friday 9 May they went full force ahead with performing their activities, after having performed a fit-check with its assigned canister.

In the mean time on Friday morning, the Brazilian 1U CubeSat was integrated in its assigned canister; unfortunately there was no one present from the Brazilian team, due to various constraints. Similarly to the day before, the other of the two QB50 precursor 2U CubeSats was already accommodated in its canister; this allowed quick integration and thus closure of the door of this canister.
