 **Summary** **Summary**
-Awaiting ​mission ​completion.+The mission ​was regarded as a failure. We did not achieve our objectives and we lost the pico payload. 
 +The balloon was released during windy conditions. There was consensus that it was safe enough to launch despite protests. The balloon traced a large sideways path and it eventually got caught in a telephone line. The line was cut and the balloon was let go with the pico. The main hab payload was left on the telephone line and was collected later by a BT engineer.
  
 **Discussion** **Discussion**
-Awaiting mission completion. +We agreed to make sure that we do not launch if the conditions are windy, even with some light wind.
