From the Ice: BARREL Status Update #30

Hi all, 

Sunday (January 19) Payload 2Y was cut down at 1800 UTC after 8 days of flight. The last coordinates were  71.55S 135.11W.  Today, the SANAE team launched payload 2C at 1616 UT in perfect conditions.  We have 5 payloads up in the air and are expecting some possible geomagnetic activity on Jan. 22nd! The weather at Halley is forecast to be pretty bad for the next few days. We might get some real snow! I'll send another update on the weather tomorrow- hoping the forecast is wrong.


P.S. Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
