My name is Kathryn, an undergraduate at Dartmouth College, and I'll be your blogger for today.
Today we buttoned up another payload and are preparing for the Flight Readiness Test tomorrow.
|Greg is hard at work testing payload 2H behind three almost-completed payloads.|
Our big excitement from today was seeing a British group launch a payload on a balloon a bit larger than ours. It was inspiring to watch and gave us some extra energy for the day.
Unfortunately, rain squashed our enthusiasm. We attempted to create a 'tent fort' to protect payloads outside from the rain. Needless to say, it didn't work.
|The remnants of our fort stand sadly in the rain.|
|Yesterday's beautiful weather with two payloads — hopefully what we will see tomorrow!|
That's all for now! Hopefully it stops raining soon...
