Plans are Set for Second Launch Attempt

An update on FLIS-2 from Mission Control:

We were looking at at a Raleigh launch in the interest of avoiding a water landing, but our current model is showing a good chance to avoid Kerr Lake. With that in mind, we are going to launch from the North Regional Library parking lot at or near 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 27. The balloon should travel around 25km and will end up near the state line. It will be a long flight and long recovery.

So, there you have it. FLIS-2 is GO for Saturday, July 27. We hope to see a bunch of you at North Regional Library for the launch.

Updates will be posted here and on our Twitter feed.
