Day 67, 5/31/09 -- Launch attempt 1, scrubbed

Well, after all that, no launch. After bringing the gondola inside, we went home to get some sleep.

We came back for the weather briefing, and the winds have REALLY picked up for FIREBall -- they would only have gotten 4 hours of night-time flight at float, so again they decided to pass on the launch opportunity. This means we get to do the whole thing again tomorrow morning!

Luckily, some of the things that we did yesterday on the hardware end don't need to be done again, so we'll save some time. Right now we're going through our pre-flight checklist again and then heading home to get some sleep.
