August 12 Flight is a Go!
Well, we had a good go at it but it looks like we lost it over Maryland a few hours into the flight. The balloon caught up to the tail end of a line of thunderstorms and got beat around pretty good. It was actually pretty neat to see the telemetry come back showing the temperature drop and other things. At 30,000 feet it went from about 53 F to -4 F in the course of just a few minutes.
