    Was this payload camera-less? What did you do differently this time?

  3. Well done LASA. How you managed it without me is a mystery. I must have taught you well. Seriously, I was thrilled to watch the balloon smash the old record and a little disappointed I couldn’t be on the recovery team. Again, all my congratulations on a mission accomplished. BZ!
