BARREL Status Report #5

BARREL Status Report #5
December 31, 2012

Today we had our Flight Readiness Review and got the green light to start launching! Both teams now have one payload ready to launch. The SANAE team was hoping to launch this afternoon, and completed their launch brief and preparations. But the wind picked up and was projected to get worse. So, we have scrubbed for today. Tomorrow looks like a possibility for both launch sites. We are going to re-assess the weather in the morning (UTC) and send out an update then.

Here's Nick wishing you a Happy New Year!!


Alexa Here, as I've kicked my fiancĂ© out of the room for our daily telecon, just want to wish him Happy B-day and thanks for being patient with all these meetings!
