BARREL Kiruna campaign update

Hej (Swedish for hi)

The campaign is almost here! Once again this year we'll have daily e-mails and telecoms during the campaign for coordination between us, the Van Allen Probes, and other friends. The list of friends is continually growing. Some of the new missions we're excited to work with are MMS, HiT&MIS (an Auroral Imager from UMass Lowell), and the new and improved FIREBIRD.

A more complete update on the science side of running the campaign can be found on the science blog here. We'll be putting the daily e-mail summaries up on the science blog as well.

Stay tuned for more updates as the team travels to Sweden and starts setting up at ESRANGE! Also follow the campaign on twitter @KeV_balloons. @PlasmaNerd on twitter (Alexa) will also be twitting the campaign from Sweden as well.

Hej då (Swedish for goodbye)
