2W terminated

Payload 2W has been terminated. It has had a great run. It was up at float altitude for ~11 days and saw some amazing events. It saw some solar flares, a SEP event, and other relativistic precipitation.

Now 2W will hopefully act as a ground based magnetometer. It is very close to AGO P6 and right in line with the rest of the AGO chain of magnetometers.

2W will be fondly remembered and studied.
