Here’s a long overdue introduction to a great group of young people who will help the AMF India deployment become another successful campaign! Led by AMF on-site technician Carlos Sousa, these observers have done an outstanding job launching weather balloons four times a day ever since they finished the four-day training program in mid-June. They are bright, curious, and enthusiastic to be part of such a significant scientific collaboration between India and the United States. We heartily welcome them to the team!
