As of 7:10am EST, Challenger is back on board the Alpha Delfino and is headed back to Santos once more. Upon first light, the team, including our friend Marcelo Dottori were on location preparing for recovery. Then after an hour and 40 minutes, they were able to pull her on board.
Once back on land, 29 will be transported back to the University of Sao Paulo facilities where she will wait for about a week until Dave can get back down to Brazil, diagnose the issues that lead to the leak, and hopefully get her back in the water.
Once again, great job team!
