my initials are APL :)

I laughed when they called the mission terrifying.... Because sitting in front of a 30" computer screen downloading information safely on earth is pretty safe, at least i thought it was!

Losing the internet connection is terrifying for scientist people I guess.

Perhaps preliminary raw data in December? Exciting times.

I worked at APL when I was a young engineer. There was always something wonderful happening there.

Thanks for the update, Franco.

With this and the European solar probe, there should be some good learning coming out over the coming years. Exciting times.
