Day 54, December 17, 2012 -- Pre-show

Tomorrow is a "show" day for launch, so we spent today doing some really last-minute stuff. After filling helium in the morning, we took the gondola out on the deck to vertically align our pivot motor with gravity to make it as easy as possible for the gondola to move in azimuth. We had some issues that we believe are related to the low temperature (and lack of solar warming with today's overcast weather -- they resolved themselves once the sun came out) so we are pressing ahead.

We head back out to LDB at 11PM for pre-flight.

No pictures today. But there will be plenty tomorrow!
