Post Launch Assessment Review (PLAR)

"Woo...that project was great but I bet you're glad that's over."- Everyone

"Um. No."- Me

"But you've launched your thing so that's it...right?"- Everyone

"Um. No."- Me

That's right kids! It's time to get back to work. Google Calls and Sunday meetings! Break time is over! 

(Where is the snooze button on Julie? We need seven more minutes.)

It's time for the Post Launch Assessment Review. You didn't think we were sending a bunch of stuff to space just for fun, right? Nope. It's time to process all of that data, identify errors, plan future launches, recap the experience, and sort through all of those photos to pick out the keepers.

Oh yeah, and while you're at it you should probably put it all in a formal, twenty page report. 

I'm actually looking forward to polishing everything we came up with and seeing it all together in one place. We're hopeful that we can solve the mystery of how to extract the radiation data from the Polimaster. It's proving to be a tough nut to crack because it runs on Windows2000/XP. Wish us luck!
