STRATODEAN One Launch - Postponed!

As those of you who follow us on Twitter will already be aware - we originally planned to launch this Sunday 14th April. As our first launch, we've been making all the necessary preparations for weeks and were really looking forward to it! We've been keeping a close eye on the weather and wind predictions but on this occasion unfortunately the elements are against us - heavy rain is forecast and the strong winds would take our balloon to the North Sea...not ideal to say the least!

STRATODEAN - Aborted Launch!
Heading for Grimsby!
However, we will not be beaten and have rearranged to launch next Sunday 21st! 

Fingers (and toes) crossed for sun and no wind!
