Tomorrow is “Launch Day”

That’s correct tomorrow IS the day we have been working towards since the end of January, four months effort all wrapped together into a span of a few hours to gauge our success in being able to send George “Lacey” to space “near-space”.  After running the predictor just a few minutes ago and importing that data into Google Earth you can see that our predicted landing location (PBL (27-940)) is a favourable one so it looks like we are a “GO”.  Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 5.54.24 PM 

The T-minus 24 hour checklist,

  • confirm buses
  • notify Egbert (Liisa) that we are a go
  • load Julie’s car
  • submit NOTAM (Notice to Airmen)
  • get sleep
  • ignore the changes in the predictor (Yeah right!)

From the morning prediction (Red), to the afternoon (Yellow) to the 12 hours to launch (blue), our landing site moved further south and west.  Lets keep our fingers crossed that no further changes occur in the forecast overnight!
