RE: Vernon Balloon eXperiment 2 CORRECTION

The time posted for the launch was incorrect, and I appoligize. The launch
time, will not be lunch time, it will be 10:30 am Pacific time, weather
permitting. If there are weather problems, the launch will be delayed till
the following day(sunday) same time(10:30). Sorry for the error.
