Launch Postponed

BLEAT’s second flight, scheduled for launch tomorrow morning, has been postponed due to unsettled weather and localised thunderstorms over the launch site. Owing the the south-westerly winds there is also a significant risk of the payload landing in the Wash (an estuary on the northwest coast of East Anglia) or the North Sea beyond.


The Cambridge University Spaceflight Landing Predictor estimates that the box will land in the North Sea

We hope to reschedule the launch for early next week. Follow our twitter feed or keep an eye on the website for further updates.
