Well if by "heading to UK and Europe" you mean "swimming to UK and Europe"

"Balloon looks to have splashed down at about 1900 UTC. Still listening
for any signal.   03:07 PM March 12, 2008"

Still 40 hours, 3300 miles, and they almost made it. I was rooting for
the balloon, just came up short. I hope they have better luck next time!
