From the ice: BARREL Status Report #5

We almost had our first launch today at Halley. As predicted, the winds were low enough in the morning, but by the time we got everything set up, the winds had picked up and were on the rise. We decided to cancel, but it was a great chance to do a dry run. SANAE acted as our ground station during the whole process as planned and that also worked well. Tomorrow doesn't look very good but we are hoping for another chance Thursday morning.
