The Kansas City Space Pirates just made their attempt, but did not meet with success. Their climber got about half-way up (perhaps a bit more) but then it stalled. After they took it down, I overhead their captain, Brian Turner, comment “we had something wired wrong” and they were working to fix it.
The picture is of their climber once back on the ground.
Spaceward personnel have also pulled the trolley (the mechanism at the top holding the ribbon, anti-rotation wire and belay line) down to examine it and will be putting it back up shortly.
The Technology Tycoons are up next.
0-2 today – let’s hope for better luck soon…
