Away 50 and Away51 are in final prep for runs to 100,000 feet within ten day.

These are specialty flights that came up at the last minute. They are both technically complex and fast tracked. With enough pepto it will all work out.

There was one set of PongSats that arrived too late for the last mission (today in fact) so they will get their flight after all.
