1I Launched today at 18:06 UT & 1B terminated

Halley Bay was also able to launch today. Just in time too as they are getting some bad weather coming in and may not be able to launch again until Monday.

1B had it's cable cut at about 20:10 UT time and is currently plummeting towards the Earth. It had a good run.

It looks like those High Speed Streams have either yet to hit us or are too high up on the suns surface, but there are still ~144 sunspots so hopefully we'll be getting some interesting space weather to look at while waiting for the next launch.
