Siberian Husky Launched!
The Siberian Husky was launched at 10:20 am. We were able to launch under perfect conditions. The perfect blue sky, a little cold temperature (10 degrees), and a light breeze (2 miles per hour) will make it possible to have a wonderful view over America (visibility around 10 miles) if we are able to retrieve the Balloon. Unfortunately, we are having some technical difficulties with the GPS system and might not be able to retrieve the balloon. We all hope that these difficulties will be resolved soon. A tweet has gone out for helping out on the search. Look out for a blue and lime green parachute and/or a yellow payload.
