BARREL Daily Update Jan 25th 2014

2C appears to have stopped calling us. If we don't hear from it again in a couple day's time it will self terminate. 

On the plus side, we've started seeing activity again, well in one payload, but better than none! Halley is also hoping to launch a balloon tomorrow and by the 26th the active sunspots from the X flare on the 7th should be back on the Earthward facing side of the Sun. 

Ground Weather:
Temp.: ?. C
Wind speed: ?

Halley 6: 
Temp.: -5.5 C
