Back In The Game

Hey All,

Well Challenger is back in the game flying to the west of Ascension with her eyes set on Brazil.

Now that we are flying to full depth and with the current at our back, we are making great progress reaching speeds of up to 27 km/day!  Dave has set the gliders parameters so the pump thow is -200/+175 with dives and climbs at an angle of 26˚.

Looking to the PINZON visualization of the myocean forecast, the currents at surface will be pushing us right along on our way while at depth, although not in a completely favorable direction, are weak enough where they won't slow us down too far.

As for now Challenger is flying like a champ and we will do our best to keep it this way!
