Picoballoon from Argentina will advance the launch date

We inform you that, for weather reasons, Amsat Argentina will advance the launch date of Pico Globo LEILA, for Thursday 6 April in the morning (between 11:00 and 13:00 Z Time) from the town of Villa Gesell, 400 Km South Buenos Aires.
The wind forecast in the area for Saturday 8 April would complicate the takeoff of the SBS13 balloon, which carries a helium load of only 130 cubic cm and raises a payload of 11 grams. The weather forecast, to be precise enough, is done 72 hours in advance; This change of plans reduced the number of members of the Amsat group present in the experiment and, certainly, the number of visitors to the event. However, we are confident that the resolution will validate the success of the flight.
