From the ice: BARREL Status Update #7

Hi Folks,

  We had another launch attempt at Halley today, but as soon as we got things set up, the winds increased and stayed right around 10 knots with gusts to 12 knots throughout most of the day. So, we cancelled today, but things look better for tomorrow. Third time's a charm, I hope! The SANAE team got their sensitive cargo off the ship today, including flight batteries. They've been working on getting their first payload ready in addition to waiting for us to launch all day. I hope I have more exciting news for you all tomorrow!
