During the two live missions, data from the aircraft's onboard system will be recorded every five minutes in the files listed here. Some data points may be missed, resulting in a few incidents where the data points are separated by ten minutes.
Data from the October 12 flight
Ten parameters will be recorded in the format below. The words in parenthesis will not be part of the data stream but are included here to help explain the parameter.
