SolRo - 2017-08-04 by having the rocket exert a force on the transducer.....
then math the shit out of the result.
M-DEEM - 2017-08-05 Very cool. Did they say what the weights are made from? I know tarnish can be issue on tiny calibration weights.
Oscar Wildcat - 2017-08-05 Prolly just a steel of some kind, from the looks of them. I'm sure platinum would be preferable, but at 16,000 USD per pound, the whole stack would set them back a cool 16 billion.
