HSA-IV prepped and ready for Hurricane Earl

So there's a hurricane whirling away off the coast of NC,  what better to do than to try and snap some pics of it from 18 miles into the stratosphere?  We opted not to launch ahead of the storm for several reasons but we're hoping to catch it on the way out,  early early tomorrow morning.  

Watch the twitter/Facebook updates from the launch/recovery and wish us luck,  it's going to be shot in the dark whether or not we get the storm with a good shot.  HSA-IV will be carrying both still and video equipment so hopefully we'll have some good pictures and be able to take you for a birds eye view via video (if we get it back!)

Next stop,  Earl!
