Interstellar TARS Model Project
Second Temporary Suspension Report
Object--To explain why the project must come to a temporary suspension
I. IntroductionMy attempt to improve the result of the figure must come to a temporary suspension because of a malfunction or more likely because of a broken parts of a laser cutter I always use.
II. Laser Cutter MalfunctionOh well, I was very excited to continue on the project after my Chemistry test. I decided to give a little bit of modification on the blueprint which is to change the thickness of the lines on the surface from 0.03 inches to 0.02 inches. However, when I arrived at Lab and started a laser cutter, I could not see a red laser pointer on the board. This red dot point is to help located where to start cutting. I asked one of the assistants there; he opened the laser cutter's pointer tip and found that the mirror and lens were broken.

While they were discussing further the damage of the machine, I simply left the lab hoping that the machine to be fixed when I come back.
III. ConclusionThey estimated that it will probably take two weeks to fix the machine and the cost is approximately $300. I am not the one going to pay for this, but it really sucks to be unable to use the machine. I hope it will not take that long time to fix the machine.
