Last Leg

RU15 hit the HL5 waypoint this morning and is now turned and heading towards Halifax inbound on the Halifax line. Currents are low, we are running about 10 cm/sec or less. About 140 km to HL2, so about a week.
Batteries still looking good, as far as you can tell. Time to settle into a scientific sampling section to go with the shipboard data currently being collected.
Here's once example of the 3-D view of the full dataset so far. We'll be presenting this to K-12 teachers at tomorrow at Liberty Science Center. They have an activity to build their own gliders out of legos and stuff. NJNetwork is going to film our undergraduates with the gliders on wednesday next week. They asked for copies of any video or stills taken from the deployment or recovery. Finally our students will be presenting their work on this flight to the public on the Ag School's Field Day next saturday, which is near the time we can start thinking about recovery. NOAA asked for a quick 100 word write up for their newsletter. We have some great I-COOL stories to share. Thanks again to our Canadian partners.
