The Race2Space launch today was a fantastic success. Jamie Reed MP cut the tether cord after a traditional count down and the balloon set off on its journey exactly as planned. A brilliant achievement for the whole team!
Unfortunately, the GPS has now lost signal so the balloon is either still in the air or has landed in a location that does not have O2 coverage. Team members Keavy and Holly are out searching – fingers crossed they can locate it.
Listen to Radio Cumbria tonight as we spread the word and encourage people to look out for the balloon. Please join in and see if you can find it for us – #search4snappy.
