More Rockoon news….

” SAT-NOV-14—ARCA has postponed the launch of Helen rocket.
The cause was determined by very powerful air currents who twisted the balloon, stopping the inflating process. ARCA team with the help of military divers restored the balloon in correct position and the inflating operation was resumed.
This action has had a length over time, in which it was lost the solar radiation intensity required for heating the air inside.” –official ARCA release
