    At this stage the mission team is closely monitoring possible new launch days before a green light is given for another countdown.
    Progress will be communicated as it happens.
    EDIT: Thursday may be an option, but they only have one balloon left (once unloaded they have to use the balloon or scrap it, so yesterday's went in the bin). They have to have winds less than 3mph to launch. Madness.

    They're clearly just rubbish. If Dave can launch a can of beer and curry into space in no less than British Weather, they should be able to do it without a problem!

    Millions of viewers watched this online. I am much happier that people are watching an historic event combining bravery and engineering than, say, Big Brother.

    I may be wrong on this, but I don't think Big Brother is on at the moment.


    I missed it, my internet was being a patoot. [Advertise internet as being good for streaming/downloading/gaming - Throttle the bejeezus out of everyone who tries it.]
