2W terminated

Payload 2W has been terminated. It has had a great run. It was up at float altitude for ~11 days and saw some amazing events. It saw some solar flares, a SEP event, and other relativistic precipitation.

Now 2W will hopefully act as a ground based magnetometer. It is very close to AGO P6 and right in line with the rest of the AGO chain of magnetometers.

2W will be remembered fondly and studied throughly.
