Initial Launch Discovered!

At this point, all we know is that it was found on a beach in Grand Haven, MI, which is directly across the lake from where it should have landed. Recovery is being negotiated now. This gives us a recovery time of 3 months from launch. The phone is soaked, but may still work once it dries out. Apparently the SD card has photos on it, but none from the launch.

We’d like to thank our Honorary Apollo67 Michigan Recovery Team for finding and returning the payload (after they show it off at school). These are photos of the recovery team (reprinted with permission).
