BARREL Status Report #8
August 12, 2016

The surface weather for Saturday looks promising so we are planning to show for launch at 1800 local. The upper level winds are still a bit westward but the speeds have come down substantially. The flight is likely to be on the shorter side but we think it will be long enough to catch the conjunction with Van Allen Probes early Sunday morning. I’ll send another update tomorrow.
