The low-level winds tomorrow (4/20, Alice Springs) look quite favorable, so NCT will show tomorrow morning for a potential launch opportunity. We’ll roll out of the hangar around 2:30 am; if everything goes well, launch will be in the 7-8 am range. You can follow along on the webcam here or here, and I’ll update live when I can get to my computer.
Unfortunately, the winds at float altitude are forecast to increase substantially relative to those during TIGRE’s ~54 hour flight just a few days ago. We’re likely to get more like a single day, as we’ll be blown more rapidly out of the area we can safely fly over. Still, you never know–we’ve been lucky before.
My immediate priority: get some rest! I’ve got to get up again in four hours!
