Day 66, 5/30/09 -- BREAKING NEWS: EBEX launch attempt tomorrow, Sunday May 31!

At today's weather briefing we got the prognosis for a decent ~12 hr. flight. FIREBall's flight profile would have put them at 111,000 feet for most of the night, which they decided was too low for them so the opportunity fell to us and we took it.

Right now we are going through the first stages of our pre-flight checklist before we head home to try and get some rest. We have to be back by 1AM so CSBF can take us out.

More updates as they become available.
