Looks like the AP Aerospace launch team is out in the desert today. Away 35 is up for launch.
A35, as per their blog, includes a drag management system test for the Ascender ship, a frickin lazer beam(!) array, and their new data gather system (samples eighteen sensors fives times a second, stores the information on a memory stick and transmits it to the ground); as well as 200 passive PongSats and 9 computer controlled PongSats.

Lift: 4000 lb balloon
Target: 140,000 feet!
