L-5 Hours, 30 minutes, And Counting

Looks like it will be a nice day for a launch.

Today's payload is EutelSat 70B, a 5000 kg communications satellite that will serve Europe, Africa, and Central/South East Asia.

I've been up since 0230 to support the weather balloon releases, and trying to cat nap between releasing balloons, setting up antennas, and putting out other little "fires" that pop up.

More info here at this link, including a link to my employer's website where the launch will be carried live.

Back to work.......
