My ‘Beat Felix!’ mission diary – Launch tomorrow!

Hadfield’s launch is confirmed for Saturday and everyone is excited! The Jet Stream is passing far to the South of the UK making this Saturday a very good time for the team to launch their final high altitude probe, Hadfield (their second and final attempt to Beat Felix). It looks like Hadfield may land between Telford and Shrewsbury so the chase will be short.

The weather forecast looks perfect with the Met Office forecasting light cloud and very little wind (apart from a few minor gusts).

The team are quietly hopeful that the third time will be the one. Wish us luck!
