I'm heading back to Alaska in about a week and a half to participate in the launch of another sounding rocket: MICA (Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling in the Alfven Resonator). This time I will be staying at the rocket range the entire time, instead of fleeing to some far-flung place during the actual launch. It seems this will not help me escape the nightmarish cold though, since Alaska is having its coldest January in over a decade. Fun for me.
So check back often, starting next week, and I will once again regale you with tales from the frozen north. Hopefully this will involve some games of Settlers, moose sightings, and snow tubing at the rocket range.
