At the end of a long day, scientists in the Gulf of Mexico get a rare chance to witness a "green flash." http://fb.me/1cBmXJbCO

Good morning all!

Just a quick update on the Challenger mission

So last night after Antonio and I conversed and changed the way point, Challenger came close to breaking its speed record for the mission by hitting 1.52 km/hr (0.42m/s)!  What contributed to this speed, was we moved the way point further east, allowing us to catch the outer edge of the east side of the warm eddy to our south.  This launched us on a south east trajectory following these new currents shown below.

 

That's all for now, we will have another post later today
