28 of May - Data missing check

Noticing that part of the data was missing from earlier decoding attempts, the participants make some improvements to their approach and decode again the Green Bank Telescope SigMF recording. Now they carefully check the frame sequence numbers and CRCs to ensure that no data has been lost or corrupted.

Plotting how the number of space packets in each APID ("packet type") increases over time, the participants notice that there are three APIDs that start transmitting packets only at the beginning of the message reception time on Earth (19:00 UTC plus a delay of about 16 minutes). They focus on the data in each of these APIDs, looking for patterns and producing visualizations and statistical analyses. Since the contents of the telemetry frames and space packets are solid at this stage, the organizers publish this information as the current state-of-the-art of the decoding process, allowing newcomers to join the decoding more easily.
