The launch of Away 26 has been delayed due to weather. Snow, rain and generally nasty conditions prevailed over the launch site. Watch this space for the new flight date.

The delay gave us the chance to get some upgrades and housekeep done on the ground equipment.
Team members Bob and Mike did a complete overhaul on the communication rack in the mission control van. Kevin and Ed preped and mounted and an additional digital camera on Away 26.
