Formal GO – no weather worries

Following an official meeting between the representatives of ISC Kosmotras, Yasny Launch Base and the formal Russian State Launch Commitee, we were informed in a general launch readiness review that the formal and final go ahead for launch has been given by the Commitee, meaning that nothing should be in the way for launch anymore.

Nothing…? Well, we were surprised a bit by mother nature, suddenly giving us a nice local rainstorm, as we tried to show in the picture below (taken from the roof of one of the buildings, where we probably shouldn’t have been at that time, but ok ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Yet also this weather has been discussed during the meeting, and,ย with the most severe weather already passed, considering the forecast, there is no reason to assume that there will be any weather conditions tonight that would endanger the launch.

So no weather worries here (anymore) ๐Ÿ™‚
