EOSS-199 was flown Saturday September 27th from Eaton. Because of concerns about shock to the fiber optic cable during launch, we used a hand-over-hand launch technique, which is not something we normally do at EOSS. It did result in a very smooth launch. Unfortunately, while lowering the fiber there was a failure of some sort that caused the fiber to fracture. The "fin" was recoverd from a back yard in Eaton with ~30 feet of fiber still attached.
