Some of the COSI team taking a nap while we wait for the launch. At this point we’ve done all of our checkouts confirming that COSI is ready. Now we wait.

Update @ 7:45am:
Launch attempt cancelled due to an increase in the surface winds. Thanks for all of the good wishes. We’ll be trying again soon!
