Launch 3 Final Update

The BLAST Team is sad to announce that the launch has been cancelled. As you are probably already aware of, weather conditions have not been favourable to say the least. Due to strong winds (gusts at the launch site and strong easterly jet streams) we have decided to abort the launch. The image below shows the flight path currently being predicted for tomorrow.

Of course this is a disappointing decision to make, however we are looking into the possibility to launch in about a month’s time at the end of April, when weather will (hopefully) be better.

The team is still working full time though, we are currently preparing our report, and the cubesat communications are not ready yet, so keep following us!
