I just ran the last samples and unfortunately had to decleare the second oven dead as well. But, it only gave up in the last 100 °C of the heating profile, so all in all the oven worked perfectly fine for the duration of the full AMASE and I got all the results I needed. Happy me and a million thanks to Marvin, Vince, Ray and Eric, who put this oven together December 2009 and made it run all the way through the ILSO-ISRU (Hawaii) campaing and AMASE! Can't say too much about the results, yet, since they will be published at some point.
Time to clean and p up and VAPoR for the way back to Goddard.
Some more random pics.
