I’m trying out WordPress for this blog. I’m hoping it will making managing the blog easer. I don’t know WordPress very well so please bear with me. I’m going to run WordPress in parallel with the existing What’s New page for a while to see how it goes.

The new blog allows posting. It’s fine if folks disagree with us but I’ll delete anything uncivil, rude or insulting.

New Away 34 Pics

We’ve been struggling with integrating a ride along payload on Tandem. A combination of serial standards that aren’t and more RF induction. It’s getting there, but it makes for very long days.

Here’s some more scenes from the Away 34 mission
