SDL Celebrated Our 60th Anniversary Family Style
In celebration of our 60th anniversary, SDL hosted a fun-filled family party this past weekend. The three-hour event featured lots of food and plenty of activities, including crafts, a tug-of-war, inflatables, a candy cannon, and science demos. (Stephen Dansie and liquid nitrogen are the perfect combination and always a crowd pleaser.) We even had a visit from Big Blue!
Delivering Mission Success Since 1959
Congratulations to all of our USU graduates!
Osiris-REX Finds Bennu Full of Surprises
Recent images captured by PolyCam reveal Bennu’s surface is scattered with boulders, forcing the team to adjust the plan for sample collection. The rough surface is not the only surprise. The satellite also observed particle plumes erupting from the surface of the asteroid and MapCam detected magnetite, which indicates the interaction of rock with liquid water. Scientists are surprised by these discoveries and looking forward to learning what else the mission will reveal. SDL provided the detector assemblies for the OSIRIS-REx Camera Suite (OCAMS) instruments, which includes PolyCam, MapCam, and SamCam.

SDL Celebrated Pi Day with a Derby
To celebrate Pi Day, SDL employees showed off their creative skills by participating in a no-rules derby. Entries ranged from a block of wood with a rock glued to the top to a car decked out with a remote control system. Spectators snacked on pie while watching the entertainment. Happy Pi day!
