First light Survey deemed a success
The results of the First Light Survey have been checked over and deemed to be a success. The satellite and instruments proved to work very well, and no changes have been needed before starting the All Sky Survey.
This means that the data taken during the First Light Survey is now officially part of the first All-Sky Survey. The start date of the All-Sky Survey can now be moved back by two weeks. This first survey should then finish 2 weeks earlier, saving precious time in terms of helium and fuel.
