We had an extremely successful launch, initial recovery effort not so succesful, but after refreshing our satellite credits the next morning, our GPS had came back to life!



The map below shows the location of the #cougballoon during the flight. When we lost the GPS data, our Lat/Long was zero, hence the middle of ocean points. This map includes the points during the drive back to WSU Vancouver after the recovery.

The graphs below contain the data we received, to include the time period between the payload landing (4:50pm PST) and when we recovered it the next morning and brought it back to campus.
