MHD Data Anomalies

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

We’ve just competed firings 34, 35 and 36 and have been getting some strange data. These units had been giving pretty consistent results, now the numbers just don’t make sense.  We’ve been doubling the engine thrust on each to increase the current output. We hoped we would see something that was too subtle in the lower current outputs and we just may have.

This is the best part of developing new tech. When something that should be the same turns out unexpected you just know you’re going to discover something interesting or cool or very very useful.

ABC News 10 is airing the story of the balloon and the hunter tonight. Dale Schornack interviewed Bob the hunter who watched the Mesospheric Explorer land and watched it while it was watching him. It on tonight (Weds, Nov. 23) at 11pm. It should be great! The stories usually are posted on line after they air.
