I'm heading out to deploy the habitat in a nearby lake soon. While you wait, here's a video of last night's deep water test in the pool. 20 minutes at 8 feet deep, without a hitch!
Keep your eyes on this space. The mission will last an unprecedented five hours if all goes as planned, and it'll be two or three hours to encode and upload the video after that. But wow, it's finally happening right?
UPDATE: Left for the lake at 1:30pm
UPDATE: returned from deployment at 3:15.
UPDATE: Checked on the surface support station twice now. Air's flowing fine, battery is holding steady at 75%.
UPDATE: Retrieved habitat a little after 7pm. Currently preparing the video for upload.
UPDATE: Uploading video, should be done around 9:15pm EST.
Final update: Mission complete. Video uploaded, and included in a new post.
